Carriage House

Perhaps the most impressive building given to the College by the Huntingtons is the stone Carriage House.  Originally designed to house carriages and fine automobiles, it will become a conference center.  While reflecting the rustic elegance of the Arbutus Great Camp, the Carriage House will contain state-of-the-art communications equipment integrated into separate teaching and meeting spaces.

New Home for the ESF Biomimicry Lab

ESF will establish a biomimicry laboratory in the heart of the Adirondacks so faculty, visiting scientists and students can devise nature-inspired solutions for sustainability challenges.

The Biomimicry Laboratory at the college's Newcomb Campus will be an Adirondack home for ESF's Roosevelt Wild Life Station and the first biomimicry lab in a wilderness. It will be established through funding from a SUNY 2020 Challenge Grant that will be used to increase the wireless connectivity and data storage, analysis, and communication capacity of both the Newcomb Campus and a biodiversity data center. The facilities will link field and laboratory observations on flora and fauna to new and more efficient designs, materials and products.
