The Eagles Nest is the former home of Ned Buntline. The New York Times on June 8, 1902 (Sunday) wrote a fine article covering many of Stamford’s hotels of that day.

In the article The New York Times wrote:

‘Eagles Nest is a spacious cottage ten minutes from the depot, with fine shade, and vegetables from the farm of the manager.’

A photograph analysis of similar photos taken at the same location many years apart. The top photo was taken in 2010 by CatskillSearch. The bottom photo is currently an unknown date.

There are several notable differences between the photographs. In the newer photo the porch has been enlarged to cover more of the front of the house. A door has been added where there was a window on the sunroom type addition. There is currently no stonewall along the roadway and no appearance of a driveway.
