Frontier Town parcels joined for auction



The County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the consolidation of parcels for the sale.


The properties were owned by North Hudson Associates LLC, the successor to Frontier Town, and Sunrise Land Development of Westchester, the company that bought the main section of the theme park in a previous tax sale.

All former owners have up to 14 days before the sale to buy back their properties by paying the back taxes, interest and penalties.

The other part of Frontier Town is the A-frame entrance building owned by George Moore of Keeseville, and taxes are fully paid on that.

A 132-acre woodlot that was part of Frontier Town will be transferred to the Town of North Hudson, to be added to its hiking trail system.


At the last Task Force meeting, Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava (R-Moriah) said it might be best to combine the Republic Steel building with the former town health center next door for the auction, but that proposal hasn’t been presented to the Board of Supervisors yet. 

The Town of Moriah owns the health-center lot.

The tax auction will be conducted by Haroff Auctions of Schroon Lake, with about 150 seized parcels going on the block.

Haroff workers are out now putting signs on the properties, County Treasurer Michael Diskin said.

“They’re starting the process, taking pictures.”
