NEWCOMB - Join Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) as we kick-off our 2009 educational series with an interpretive cross-country ski into the 19th-century, Adirondack Great Camp, Camp Santanoni, on Feb. 8, 2009.
Learn about the camp's fascinating history and architectural significance that make it a National Historic Landmark. The 10-mile round trip ski, along the preserve's gently sloping historic carriage road, leads us into the majestic wilderness estate.
Steven Engelhart, AARCH Executive Director and John Friauf, former AARCH Board Member, will lead the tour. The group will depart Santanoni Preserve parking area, off Route 28N in the hamlet of Newcomb at 10 a.m., returning around 3 p.m.
This is a remote site. We encourage all participants to bring a trail lunch and plenty of hydration. The fee is $10 for members and $15 for non-members. Advance registration is required by calling AARCH at (518) 834-9328.
