In spite of its apparent crowded highways, Western Long Island has areas that are left completely wild. Muttontown Preserve is such a place and on its Northern side are the ruins of the once villa owned by King Zog of Albania. He actually never stayed in the villa but the rumors ran that he hid inside a treasure. The treasure hunt that followed combined with the damaging done by servants who were not paid brought the destruction of the villa, and in spite that the king sold it in 1955, it ended up being demolished in 1959.
