Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 16, 2000):
Constructed in 1897, Sagamore Lodge is an outstanding example of a large-scale Adirondack wilderness retreat, a property type that was influential in the development of numerous camps, lodges, organization camps, and state and national parks throughout the country during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Its architect, William West Durant, is widely regarded as the most important innovator in the evolution of the Adirondack camp property type and was a prominent figure in the development of the Adirondacks as a fashionable resort. Within the Adirondack camp context, Sagamore Lodge is exceptionally significant as one of the most architectually sophisticated and fully developed examples of its type.

Condition:
Stone piers on main lodge are tilting. Foundation of playhouse is deteriorating. Several roofs are in need of repair. But the trustees are currently developing a new facilities plan to address needs.

Repair/rehabilitation of chalet roof through donor gifts.
