There are a lot of fun things to do in the Capital Region throughout the summer but this one is not only fun, but it's an adventure. There are paddling tours being offered in two cities along the Mohawk River.
In 1992 it is believed this mansion in Rexford cost over $32 million to build. Original owner, Albert Lawrence built it to be modeled after Cornell University's campus center. He was an alumnus of the college and Llenroc is actually Cornell spelled backward. Fast forward after three previous owners and scandals, this outdated mansion has sold for just $1.9 million. This mansion may be outdated but it is grandiose and over the top. It has a 5-floor glass elevator, 24K gold gilded ceilings, Scandanavian marble floors, 15 fireplaces, and a sailboat-shaped indoor pool. It also has a mermaid bar with see-through views of the pool and fountains. It sits on 12 acres along the Mohawk River.
The Capital Region has some pretty haunted places. Some are haunted because they're historical and some are because something terrible happened there. In the story of this famous Schenectady Stockade ghost, it's both.
