- ESF News: New Adirondack-based Institute will Study Northern Forests
- Inside ESF magazine feature on the Masten House
As a major contribution to NFI, the Open Space Institute has pledged the use of the Masten House and financial support for its restoration. The historic Masten House is an 8-bedroom mansion located on Henderson Lake. It is within the state historic district encompassing the former town of Adirondac, situated at the southern entrance to the High Peaks Wilderness and the source of the Hudson River. Its location, size, and amenities make it a powerful location from which to provide educational programs based on conservation and recreation. The Masten House will complement the accommodations of the Arbutus Great Camp and the Carriage House Conference Center to host groups of 30 to 50 professionals in the comfort of rustic elegance that is the hallmark of the Adirondacks.
