The Hedges on Blue Mountain Lake
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the property started as the Duryea Camp in 1880. The camp became “The Hedges” when the Collins family welcomed its first guests in 1921. The Hedges evolved and grew throughout the twentieth century. For his rugged yet comfortable Great Camp, Civil War General Hiram Duryea chose one of the most beautiful settings in the Adirondack Mountains. Into the shoreline of crystal-clear Blue Mountain Lake he tucked a boathouse, dining room, kitchen, and other buildings for the enjoyment of his family and guests wishing to escape the heat and humidity of New York City. Over the past 100 years since the “General’s Camp” became The Hedges, many buildings have been added, and improvements made by several subsequent owners. They have preserved this famous rustic resort so future generations of guests can continue to share in the camp’s unique charm and ambiance.
