The City of Poughkeepsie is pretty magical after all.

Right in the City of Poughkeepsie is a small forest. It's actually a National Historic Site, called Springside Landmark. Springside was once the estate of Matthew Vassar, the founder of Vassar College. While most of the original estate is gone, some buildings remain by the majority is now woods.

Springside is open to the public year-round and has maintained trails. Recently, I was exploring these trails when I discovered something right out of a fairytale. I found real-life fairy houses right at the base of trees. It was so cool. Take a look at the pictures I got of fairy houses in the City of Poughkeepsie.
