The Robert Sands Estate was a historic home located at Rhinebeck, Dutchess County, New York. The house was built about 1796 and is a 2 1⁄2-story, brick filled wood frame building, with a gable roof and sheathed in clapboard. It sat on an extant stone foundation and measured five bays wide by four deep. Also on the property were a contributing 1 1⁄2-story frame cottage and four frame farm outbuildings, including a Dutch barn.
It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987. In 2015 the National Park Service, which oversees the Register, announced that it was considering a request to remove it as a result of a 1999 fire that left only the foundation. It did so in August of that year.>(read more...)
