Bluff Point: Hotel Champlain to Clinton Community College
One of several free tours AARCH is offering this season, highlighting unique structures and the stories behind them. The walking portion of the tour will last approximately two hours; please be prepared for periods of walking and standing. Pre-registration is not required, but is appreciated.
As part of the Adirondack Coast Cultural Alliance‘s Museum Days, our third walking tour of the season will explore the history and architecture of the beautiful buildings that now comprise Clinton Community College (CCC) in Plattsburgh.
Situated on Bluff Point, one of the most scenic spots on Lake Champlain, the college is housed in the main building and cottages of the former Hotel Champlain, once a grand resort destination. This tour provides a unique opportunity to view the adaptive reuse of these historic resources into an important public educational institution.
Steven Frederick, Vice President of Development at CCC and Dr. Richard Frost, AARCH board member and author of Hotel Champlain to Clinton Community College: A Chronicle of Bluff Point, will lead the tour. We will begin at the entrance to the college’s grand Spanish Revival style building at 10 a.m. There is no fee.
Address: 136 Clinton Point Dr, Plattsburgh, NY
The tour starts at the main building’s first floor entrance (underneath the elaborate stairs and porch!)
Parking: Parking is available in all lots.
