LONG LAKE, N.Y. (AP) - The Adirondack Great Camp built by Gilded Age financier J.P. Morgan is on the market for more than $3 million.

The Times Union of Albany reports (https://bit.ly/1op5jr0 ) that Morgan’s Camp Uncas has been put up for sale for $3.25 million by owner Howard Kirschenbaum, professor emeritus at the University of Rochester.

The remote 4.6-acre property sits on a peninsula on Mohegan Lake in the town of Long Lake, in northern Hamilton County. Built in 1895, the camp features a 4,000-square-foot, five-bedroom main lodge and nearby guest cabins.

Many of the furnishings are original, including Morgan’s desk and his custom six-foot-long bath tub.

After Morgan died in 1913, his son kept the property for the next 30 years. It then had a series of owners, including the Rockland County Boy Scouts.
