Scouting NY has published pictures of existing buildings on Fort Totten. Unfortunately, some of these wonderful structures may not survive the Department of Parks & Recreation. Willets Farm House, the oldest building on the fort, which is all but ready to collapse, has a sign that proclaims “Please Excuse My Appearance! I Am A Candidate For Historical Preservation.”
We no longer need worry about the future of this special building. It’s now being safeguarded by a sign.
