United States of America VIDEOs-Fire Destroys Haunted Woolworth Mansion-Where Owner Killed Herself

Mystery Blaze Destroys Woolworth Family's $90Million Long Island Estate 'Haunted' by Heartbroken Heiress Who Killed Herself in 1917 in the 'Marie Antoinette Suite' Which has Been Locked ever Since

F W Woolworth built Long Island mansion in 1916 after his previous home was burned down in mystery Blaze erupted in first-floor bedroom of 16-acre estate on Wednesday morning, owners were out150 firefighters battled the flames which spread quickly, one was hospitalized with carbon monoxide exposure

Daily Mail UK, 30 January 2015







A mysterious fire has gutted the $90 million mansion built by five-and-dime creator F W Woolworth. One of the East Coast's most elaborate estates, the marble-pillared abode (pictured center inset in its former glory and center and right after the blaze) was constructed in 1916 - after the family's first property was mysteriously burned down.


Ever since, it has been plagued by rumors of paranormal activity as people claim to hear the cries of Woolworth's daughter, Edna Woolworth, who committed suicide in 1917, pictured left. According to reports, her spirit has been spotted roaming the vast chambers, and her cries can be heard from the forever-locked Marie Antoinette room. On Wednesday, flames ripped through the 16-acre Glen Cove estate, leaving the current owners with millions of dollars worth of damage.

Burned down: The blaze erupted on Wednesday at the mansion on Long Island built by five-and-dime store founder F.W. Woolworth




Former glory: This is what the 16-acre Glen Cove estate looked like before flames spread through a wing of the 1916 structure



The blaze erupted shortly before 11am in a first-floor bedroom, officials said.
Flames quickly spread through a wing of the 25,000-square-foot 1916 structure while the owners were out.
One firefighter was hospitalized suffering from carbon monoxide-related side effects after 150 officers from 10 different departments responded to the call.
The groundskeeper, a part-time firefighter, alerted the fire service after seeing smoke billowing from the house while plowing snow, the Wall Street Journal reported.

James Hickman, supervisor of the Nassau County Fire Marshal investigations unit said the damage will be expensive.

'I can't put a dollar value on it,' Mr Hickman told the Wall Street Journal. 'The woodwork and some of the contents were irreparably damaged.'

The property was erected by Woolworth after his previous home was burned down in a mysterious house fire.

Now, just shy of 100 years later, his beloved Italian Renaissance-style estate has been similarly damaged.









Mogul: Frank Winfield Woolworth founded F W Woolworth Co, which ran stores known as 'Five-and-Dimes' selling products for five or ten cents. In 1913, he built the $13.5m Woolworth Building in New York which was then the tallest building in the world at 792ft

The mansion has been owned by Martin Carey, the brother of former New York Governor Hugh Carey, since 1978.
His accountant, Leonard Fritzson, said the family was distraught.
The fire was not deemed suspicious. The cause is under investigation.
The home was designed by noted architect C P H Gilbert.

Woolworth's plans for the $9 million home were already drawn when his previous abode burned down.
He requested marble walls, marble pillars, two greenhouses, a tea house, and a $2 million staircase - all in Italian Renaissance style.

Over the years, it has been haunted by rumors of paranormal activity.






The spirit of Woolworth's second daughter Edna is said to linger around the premises after she committed suicide on May 2, 1917

The spirit of Woolworth's second daughter Edna is said to linger around the premises after she committed suicide on May 2, 1917.
It is claimed she took her own life at New York City's Plaza Hotel, though many believe the never-unlocked 'Marie Antoinette' room in the mansion was in fact the place of Edna's death, while her father was hosting a party.
Following the incident, a crack appeared in the marble family crest above the fireplace.

Noises have been heard, 'spirit sightings' have been reported, and visitors claimed they heard a woman crying in the Marie Antoinette room.
