"Osprey Island, Raquette Lake"

Camp Fairview, built by Wm Durant's cousin Charles, on the 12 acre island.  We still paddle over for fresh spring water.

Joseph O. A. Bryere was the caretaker.  He and his wife Mary built Brightside, which burned in 1905, then rebuilt.  The new hotel was run by their daughter until the early 1960s and in 2000 was purchased by the TLC Division of FIS.
