King Zog's Ancient Ruin in America

COMPRISING 550 ACRES OF fields, woodlands, ponds and estate grounds, Muttontown is Nassau County's largest nature preserve and one of the most beautiful settings on Long Island. The ruins of the mansion once owned by King Zog of Albania can still be viewed in the wooded area just north of Muttontown Road. I captured just one of the many ancient looking archeological type find with this outdoor gazebo/sitting area. King Zog, the last monarch in Albania, remains one of the preserve's curiosities. Zog, who fled Albania after the Italian invasion of 1939 and lived in England, Egypt and France in the years after, acquired the 150-acre Knollwood Estate at Muttontown, Long Island, NY in 1951.
