sometime in the mid 1800s and home to Dr. Darling B. Whitney the property
was sold to the Brooklyn Baptist Young Peoples Union in 1915 and became a
fresh air home, or camp, named Sunshine Acres. In 1961 they relocated to
their present location in upstate Naponach, NY.
The house was located on Townline Road just North of
the Methodist Church and served as the main building for the camp. The
dorms, dinning hall, and chapel were on top of the hill across the fields.
