An official Path Through History Site! A National Historic Landmark designed by William West Durant, Sagamore was the summer and winter vacation retreat for the Vanderbilt family from 1901 to 1954. They now operate as a not-for-profit and offer daily historical tours of the complex and a variety of overnight programs for families, outdoor enthusiasts, artists, and more. Their mission is to foster understanding, care, and respect for nature, people, and their critical interdependence. Great Camp Sagamore strives to be a place where broad and diverse audiences gather to use these unique buildings and the natural setting to explore and understand the Adirondack culture, environment, and relationship to both. Open Memorial Day through Columbus Day.
