Preserving Debar Pond Lodge Webinar

April 26, 2023 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

Join AARCH for an exploration of the history and future of Debar Pond Lodge in Franklin County. We will discuss the importance of preserving the lodge along with an in-depth conversation about the proposed constitutional amendment, its corresponding conservation easement, and why it makes good environmental sense to preserve the lodge.

In 1939, prolific Saranac Lake architect William G. Distin designed this sprawling 17-room, cedar log lodge. New York State the property and added the surrounding 1,200 acres to the Forest Preserve in 1979, and formally acquired the lodge in 2004. AARCH worked to add the site to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004.
