One of the long-razed and forgotten about notable buildings in Queens was the Chisholm Mansion, which was located in the midst of Herman MacNeil Park in northwest College Point overlooking the East River.
The mansion was built in 1848 by Mrs. John Rogers and given to her daughter, Mary Rogers Chisholm, as a wedding gift. The house was owned by the Rogers family until 1930 when it was acquired by NYC. The mansion, shown here in 1937, was demolished by 1940, though its location is now marked by a flagpole.
