not surprising. it's a great legend of a place, but dilapidated beyond belief. don't think anyone's been able to walk in the upper two floors in years for fear they'd fall through. it's creepy and in horrid shape. being an historic landmark, it's hard to rehab due to restrictions and cost.
i'm sure some big ass houses will go up there soon, and i'm sure that was the aim all along in this condemnation...

Why not get one of those rehab tv shows to fix it? They like challenges. Probably get it done in a week too!

If any one ever loved the water and the choices here, they are going to miss the Mineola view, docks and ambiance. If you have been there, think about some of the pictures displayed. This area is a very well established fun place that has many friends and will forever. Will miss you Mineola.
Close Mineola Thank You

Ambiance,??? Do you live the Project's "Chain Lover" Horse barns have a nicer floor's, and as far as the rest rooms it was cleaner outside.Pete gave that to his booze guzzling daughter for her play house and a way for her to buy friends. Who is kidding who,?? he hasn't stuck ten cent's into it in 30 years, the toilets, or should I say troff in the mens room has leaked for ten years and even floods out on big rains. The whole place is dark and water logged and any time anyone said something to Pete, about getting grants to fix it up or look into societies, he would just laugh. Well who looks like the "Ass" now,,?? Pete couldn't play God with a historic society and couldn't call any of the shots, and for his power hungry ego it wouldn't work.So Ed bender cut his nut's off for him and sent him packing.You showed everyone Pete, LOL LOL
