I noticed in the photo from August 12, 1983 the left lower portion of the house was boarded up, however the next photo from a year later it was not boarded up. I just thought this odd, unless the pics were flipped.
I know nothing much is left of even ruins of the house, but can anyone go on to this property today? I live just south of Land o' Lakes, I'd like to venture out there if it would be possible. Anyone know?
The house was getting a lot more dilapidated towards the end. Look at the trees and grass growing on it. In the beginning a lot of the windows were still there and the doors were boarded up. I think that people just broke it all, either to break in or just to be destructive. I think the boards were just torn down by trespassers. If you go there now, I am sure it is posted, so technically you would be trespassing. I'm not telling you to go there, but I am sure a lot of people do without permission. In the other topic about Summerwind you can read how someone contacted the owners (but he won't give out their contact info) and they gave him permission to go there. If you do decide to go there, obviously you need to be responsible and respectful.
"omw" I just wanted to say, Thank's for shareing these picture's. This is some of the best collection of pic's i've seen on any web site. Also getting to read the letter, That was to cool. I look forward to more of your contribution's on summerwind if their are some left. Thank's Again for shareing!!!
Those were awesome photos!!!!!! I'm really glad you posted them. I went there last year out of curiosity after seeing something about it on TV. It's a little tricky to find at first and there's nothing left but the foundation these days but it was still pretty cool go there. After seeing your mom's I wish I had gone there years ago. I think I'm just totally jealous - LOL!!!
Nothing has ever been rebuilt on the land. You should be able to find photos of the ruins on this website and other places online. Check out the Haunting Experiments post. They are going to be doing a video on Summerwind. They are going there in July, so it should out sometime in July or August. I always say that if I win the lottery I am going to rebuild Summerwind and turn it into a bed and breakfast.

We fell a bit behind. We went there September 15th and are actually putting it together right now! It will be out sometime next month. :-) We can't wait to post it on YouTube and show it to everyone. It's funny, my husband Tony is working with your photos right now. ;-)
