Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 16, 2000):
Santanoni Preserve is an outstanding example of a Adirondack camp. As a property type, the Adirondack camp influenced the development of environmentally responsive resort facilities in the state and national park systems, and was transitional in the evolution of open informal planning in American residential architecture. Built within the context of a private preserve, Santanoni provides insight into the origin of American environmental consciousness, especially the preservation of wilderness, and contributes to our understanding of public resort development in our state and national parks.

The Landmark received a 2004 federal Save America's Treasures matching grant in the amount of $ 365,000 to correct widespread exterior deterioration, structural problems, and safety hazards throughout the site.
