|Xavier Institute For Gifted Youngsters|
Located at 1407 Graymalkin Lane, just outside of North Salem, Westchester County, New York, the original ancestral Xavier estate was built in the late 1700s. Was owned by Professor Charles Xavier, this sprawling mansion was erected near Breakstone lake and serves as a school, as well as the secret headquarters of an elite team of mutants known as the X-Men.
The estate was originally named The Xavier School For Gifted Youngsters, but changed its name to The Xavier Institute for Higher Learning with the opening of a new school in Snow Valley, Massachusetts. Since the recent closing of the Massachusetts Academy, the original name was restored, although due to the reconstruction of the Mansion the name had once more been changed to The Xavier Institute for Higher Learning.
The Mansion had been destroyed on many occasions. During its reconstruction, the Mansion took on a bold new appearance; the overall Mansion was in the shape of an "X". Although the outside looks modern, the inside had retained its 1700s-style decor with oak-paneled walls and wooden floors. The mansion still houses its state of the art facilities for the education, training and protection of mutants.
