     History
    First the canned "I googled it" stuff;
    Scaroon Manor – once one of the largest and grandest of the Adirondack resorts – was purchased by the State in 1967, and at the time of its acquisition, the Conservation Department had formulated an elaborate recreational plan for this property often referring to it as "Saratoga North." This plan was never actualized."

    That's it in a nutshell; the resort was started as a Jewish retreat similar to those in the "Borscht belt" in the the Catskills.
    It was huge; the Movie "Marjorie Morningstar" was filmed here in the fifties, and I watched every minute.


    Although the State sold and destroyed almost all of the improvements (over 100 buildings), an overwhelming majority of area residents and those familiar with the legacy of Scaroon Manor feel that the "culture" and history of Scaroon Manor should not be allowed to die and thus the idea of "The Center for the Preservation of Adirondack Cultural History" has come forth. The concept is to preserve the Cultural History (heritage) of the Adirondack’s Grand Hotels, the many Youth Camps and the performing arts – all of which have deep roots in the Adirondacks (which have not been documented to date.)
