Building History

  • History of the 199 Milton Avenue Ballston Spa:

    Originally built in the 1875 by the Honorable Saratoga County Judge Jesse S. L�Amoreaux and his wife as their home. After the death of his wife in 1914 and his death in 1918, through his endowment to the First Presbyterian church of Ballston Spa, it was to be used as a home for disabled Presbyterian ministers, widows, and orphans. This use continued until is was purchased and converted into a Masonic Temple in 1958, survived a fire in 1983 and restored and purchased by real estate developer Rory O�Connor in 2006. Mr. O�Connor lovingly and painstakingly restored and refurbished the Victorian style building back to its original splendor, with stunning mahogany wood work, marble fireplace, porches, interior fixtures, wood flooring, and intricate exterior embellishments reminiscent of the original 19th century period in which the building was erected. Home to the Salerno Law firm, and several other professionals on the first and second floors- A true gem on Milton avenue. The main street and traffic pathway in the quaint village of Ballston Spa, NY. Ample off street and rear parking off Thompson street is free of charge.
