    Ouch, poor thing. The smaller stairs branching off the main stair curve is fascinating.

      I thought that little stairway off the main stairs was really trippy, although from the doorway clearly original. The whole house is a gigantic interesting project. If this were in Missouri instead of New York, I would definitely be interested.

    Never has a house needed a hug as much as this one. I wish I had the resources to help out the old girl!

    Shown as the home of D.B. Smith on 19th century maps, the house was built in the Erie Canal era which brought great prosperity to central New York state.

    David Benjamin Smith (~1800-1869) was a farmer and merchant from the lower Hudson Valley who married Sarah Ann Sayre, then came to Cayuga County about 1820. They established a successful store at Port Byron and raised a large family, with 8 of their 12 children reaching maturity.

    I don’t see much documentation on the house, though it’s important to local history and is badly in need of attention to preserve it.

    Servents stairs probably. We had a house in Md with a similar stair setup. Or maybe a place to hide granny.?

      The “second” stair leads to the adjacent wing, which has a lower second-floor level than the main block.

      Fascinating house. It appears that enough original material remains to do a faithful restoration. The house was once a knock-out and could be again.

    Ouch! The wonderful Egyptian revival mantle https://www.oldhousedreams.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/03/26-80PineSt.jpg hints at a glorious past. Would love to see it restored back to a fully open hearth.

    That’s a tragedy. So sad to see a once-lovely house in this condition. Hope someone saves her. It’s almost too late.

    I never thought I’d say this, but call in all the folks at HGTV: There are plenty of walls to be torn out!

    I’m assuming the wing portion of the house was an add on?? My inclination would be to demolish that portion and restore the beautiful temple form portion of the house, possibly adding an appropriate addition with modern kitchen to the rear, not readily visible from the street. Lots of potential here. I like the elevated lot as well.
