Showhouse Opens May 3, 2011

It is with a great deal of excitement and enthusiasm that Vanguard is announcing the 2011 Showhouse!  This remarkable historic home, located in Loudonville, is owned and is being completely restored by Nathanial Bette. It was originally commissioned in 1839 and completed in 1841 by William Stafford. He was a merchant, assemblyman and judge. He named his summer home Prospect Place. Over the years many illustrious Albanians owned the home and a full history will be presented in the future. Mr. Bette will be working with our Designers and Decorative Painters to bring the famous home back to its original Federal beauty with touches of its other historic features and the comfort and beauty of current design possibilities. Like all “Grande Damesâ€
