What a shame this home was historically mutilated after Spogen's sold it. One of Herkimer's finest homes was, for all practical purposes, destroyed out of stupidity.

this home WAS NOT "historically mutilated" as one comment stated. Instead, the home went under extensive renovations, the top floor removed and it was restored to resemble the original farmhouse. There was no stupidity involved in the renovation...only the stupid comment made before getting the needed facts correct.

Sorry, but it was mutilated as compared to the stately look the home had in the early 1900's. Turning the home back to a "farm house" may be restoration to some, but mutilation to others. The home is no longer the impressive looking structure from German Street as it once was. It is now just another "farm house" among many in central New York.
