YES, this is the Collins Family Estate on the Classic DARK SHADOWS. I spelled it wrong in a previous comment post above: so it's the Lyndhurst Mansion it's incrediable and nice to know it still stands and how wonderful they give Tours & that the Classic DS's Sarah/Sharon Smyth and 1991-Willie/Jim F. (love that DS's too!!) give the Tour. I bet that was a treasure being in their presence.
