Figure 2.19: Adirondack Great Camp, "Pine Knot." William West Durant, 1879. The gable fan, radial stick motif and mitered log siding are typical features of this camp, one of the first on Raquette Lake. It was quoted in Stoddard's guide book as "unquestionably the most picturesque and recherche affair of its kind in the wilderness." (Kaiser, The Great Camps of the Adirondacks, p. 74)
