The Point (originally “Camp Wonundra”) was built in the 193os on the shore of Upper Saranac Lake for William Avery Rockefeller and his family by architect William Distin. A complex of buildings constructed of hewn logs and natural stone, The Point embodies the grandeur of the era of the Great Camps.
The Camp was re-christened The Point in 1986 as a world-class resort. In the years following, its pristine interior furnishings and stunning architecture helped make The Point a very exclusive destination. This year AARCH has the rare opportunity to visit this historic camp turned luxury resort along with Adirondack architect Andrew Chary. This outing is a unique opportunity to see the work of a contemporary architect within an historic property. We will begin the day at the adjacent Camp Conor, an early 1930s camp also designed by Distin. After lunch we will head over to The Point, for an in-depth look at this historic camp.
The fee is $100 for AARCH members and $110 for non-members. Please note that there is a 2-person maximum per reservation.
