Adventure

When you set out on an adventure with Adirondack Architectural Heritage, you can expect to see most well-known historic structures in our region, including historic Great Camps and the stunning rustic architecture made famous in the Gilded Age.  But we’ll also take you beyond the popular.  We’ll introduce you to local treasures like World War II-era Lustron Homes in Plattsburgh.  We’ll bring you to historic downtowns and Main Streets while we discuss commercial evolution in the Adirondacks.  We’ll  traverse the Ausable River and shine a light on local engineering landmarks like the Stone Arch Bridge in Keeseville.  We’ll introduce you to Adirondack builders and architects like Coulter, Muncil, Prescott, and Inman. 

And, in addition to our far-reaching and popular summer tours, we offer dozens of lectures and workshops in destinations across the Park where we invite you to learn, listen, discuss, and practice all of the exciting aspects of architecture and historic preservation in the Adirondacks.
