North Tonawanda, NY - The home located at 208 Goundy Street is a burned out shell of its former self.
The stately home was built in 1889 for Alexander Kent, a self made business man and lumber baron. The home was designed by Stanford White, the architect of the New York Central Terminal and Madison Square Garden.
"It's a shock first of all. I cannot conceive why someone would destroy something so historic, it just boggles the imagination. Now why would you do something like that?" said Patrick Barnard with the Tonawanda Historic Society.
