Henry, I really enjoyed your story on John Anderson and the Ghosts. I had no idea
his estate was near Maple St. I lived on Spruce St for 20 years before moving to nearby Connecticut. My Dad and two brothers still live there. Now I know why there’s an Anderson Avenue and Rice Avenue in Webber Park. Do you have any historical tidbits on any of the homes on Spruce St? I lived at 11 Spruce St. where there is a large two-story stone garage. Wondering if the garage was part of the old Douglas estate? I should probably buy your book for more info..

Allen, thanks for your comments. I think we would need to look at the old maps for evidence of structures on Spruce Street that would be contemporary with the Anderson mansion (perhaps a carriage house). I do recall there were some buildings shown in Webber Park east of New Broadway and west of the Old Croton Aqueduct, but off hand I do not remember where along the current New Broadway they stood.
