I have always been fascinated with the Great Camps of the Gilded Age of American History.
Built of course with money made of the backs of laborers, they still were beautiful examples of craftmenship.
Sagamore. Built for Willaim Durant between 1895 - 1897. Bad legal issues and failing business ventures meant Durant did not enjoy it for very long.
Although Willaim was responsible for much of what became known as Great Camps. His personal and financial life never seemed to allow him to benefit from them.
On a trip a few years ago with my wife exploring the Adirondacks I was finally able to make the pilgrimage to Sagamore.
I have not found my photos yet, so this picture is from Sagamores web site.
