Nicholas Hollenbeck's land in Marathon & Willet

Updated: Oct 8, 2020

Nicholas Hollenbeck built this impressive Carpenter Gothic Style home in Willet, New York, in 1885. Featuring first floor porches on either side of a central gable with a bow window.

This treasured photograph was shared by Nancy Hollenbeck. Whether or not the house still stands, is unknown. This home may have been on Johnson Road, or perhaps off of Bloody Pond Road. See the map below, which shows the locations of properties owned by Nicholas Hollenbeck in Lots 67 and 76.

The following are some land transactions involving Nicholas Hollenbeck:

  • In 1854, Nicholas purchased land from Christian SHEVALIER for $500, a tract about two miles west of Willet. (Bk 23,446).
