Broken & Abandoned
Madam Sherri Castle - July 17. 2017
Madame Sherri, born Antoinette Bramare, married actor and dancer Andre Riela in 1911, and the couple moved to New York and changed their name to Sherri. Mystery surrounds the reason for this name change as well as other aspects of their life together. In New York, Madame Sherri made a name for herself designing elaborate costumes for Broadway productions, most notably the Ziegfeld Follies. After her husband’s death, she decided to build a unique structure in the woods of Chesterfield, New Hampshire, to hold parties for her theater friends.

I drove past this rusting relic on Purgatory Road in Mount Vernon for several before clicking a few photos. Slowly it is being reclaimed by the forest.
