A Castle on Peterboro

This former house of the early twentieth century playboy millionaire James Scott was converted into an apartment building.  Falling into decay and gutted by fire, it was abandoned in the early seventies and then gutted by fire.  Scott donated the money to extend the western point of Belle and build a huge fountain where his statue faces the fountain and city.


James Scott House 

This gutted castle-like apartment on Peterboro Street  is one of the numerous abandoned elegant apartments that marred the city following the suburban flight that began in the fifties.
