The Macy Villa served as lodging for some of the wealthier patients, as part of the Bloomingdale Insane Asylum. The Villa had a large wooden porch that surrounded the entire building, which has since been taken down. Otherwise, Buell Hall’s exterior looks pretty much exactly the way it did in the 1800’s. But apart from Buell Hall and the occasional oddly shaped building, there isn’t much left over from Bloomingdale.
