Among the most notable buildings in Saratogo is the casino Morrissey, built in 1870 in what is now downtown's Congress Park. Later renamed Canfield Casino for the professional gambler who purchased the property in the 1890s, the three-story brick Italianate building hasn't been operated as a casino since an anti-gambling crusade shut it down in 1907.
