Camp Sagamore, Part III

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Mrs. Vanderbilt added quite a bit of fun to the property including this very inviting "Playhouse"

Lots of taxidermy. It is also the only structure on the property designed by a professional architect but happens to be the least structurally sound and has required the most repair.

 Which naturally features an adjacent en plein air bowling alley. Replete with original (and working) return.

And of course, decor for all seasons

One last thing, I thought these twin cottages were my favorite. Still used by visiting family (although the property is in the care of Sagamore Institute of the Adirondacks) these were built by Mrs. Vanderbilt for her children, this is one of the two.
