St. Ann's Hermitage

Poughkeepsie, New York 12601, United States

Created By: Marist College


Chalanda sold the last bit of property to Dr. George T.C. Way in 1975. He was a well know obstetrician in Poughkeepsie. He and his family would renovate the Newbold carriage house and expand it to what we see today. They added a pool, three external carports, and added additions to the back of the house for more office space. Interestingly, during their construction, they used stones from the old Newbold main house to help build the foundation. They also constructed a large shed on the footprint of the on Newbold main house. After the Ways retired from work, they sold the land to Marist College in 1997. Their house would become the Saint Ann’s Hermitages that is still used by Marist ROTC to this day.
