245 Grand Street is just another example of the original photographs and images that exist of many Newburgh residences. If you purchase a home in Newburgh and want to restore the architectural details, the Newburgh Free Library, and many other organizations have original photos of many buildings. This original image of 245 Grand Street has a caption underneath that says, “Mr. and Mrs. D. McClughan.” They were probably the first owners. The architect was Frank E. Estabrook, the same architect who designed the Liberty Street School as well as many other buildings in Newburgh. It was built in 1880. Notice the post in the front of the house to tie up horses.
Today, both sides of the building are for sale. They are 245 and 245A Grand Street. The 245 side supposedly has 2 units, and 245A has 3. The listings say that both sides have been updated. This property is in the Montgomery-Grand-Liberty Streets Historic District, and in the vicinity of many architecturally known buildings. It’s nice when you can look at a building from today and step into the past and see what it looked like over 100 years ago. Check out the following link to see more examples of Newburgh Real Estate.
