About the Book:
White Pine Camp is one of the Adirondack region’s prized historic places. This book explores White Pine Camp’s fascinating story, including: the design and building of its unique architecture through a collaboration of architects William Massarene and Addison Mizner and master builder Ben Muncil; a parade of prominent owners throughout the 20th century; its use as the 1926 summer White House by Calvin Coolidge; its use by Paul Smith’s College over 35 years; and the inspiring historic preservation case study which brought the camp from near destruction to restoration to being open to the public for guest accommodations and historical tours.
