Dating back to 1785, 131 Montgomery Street is one of the 3 oldest homes left in Newburgh. It has been on and off the market for years, but now it is in foreclosure for $32,900 when just three years ago we showed this home listed at $229,800. According to city historian, the legend is that original owner, Selah Reeve, was a member of the Masonic order, and that George Washington may have come to Masonic meetings there. However, this is doubtful since the house was more likely built 10-15 years after Washington left Newburgh.
Interior photos show many details have been stripped, but if you are interested in some of the rescue me homes we have posted, this would be an excellent candidate. Everything has been painted white, and we mean everything. You can see urban renewal just about stopped at this block. Let’s hope neglect does not take these homes now.
