Camp Santanoni, Newcomb

Santanoni was built for Robert and Anna Pruyn of Albany beginning in 1892. The estate eventually included 12,900 acres and nearly four-dozen buildings. Since 1972 the Santanoni Preserve has been owned by New York State. It is on the National Register of Historic Places, and is a National Historic Landmark. AARCH has long been associated with the protection, interpretation and restoration of this regional treasure.

How YOU Can Help:
