Own a piece of Adirondack History! The Chapel at Indian Carry is an exceptional example of authentic Adirondack architecture. Circa 1880, the chapel was built by Champlain Presbytery. Indian Carry is one of our area’s first settlements and is where first settler Jesse Corey called home at his Rustic Lodge. This location and lodge became a popular spot for travelers and was a portage between Upper Saranac Lake and the Raquette River. Later the lodge was leased and eventually sold, becoming a private camp for the Swenson family. Today Indian Carry is a small community of properties that the chapel is neighbor to. This location has so much to offer - public access from the Old Dock Rd to Upper Saranac Lake and the Trailhead for Axton Landing and Stony Creek Ponds border this property. Upper Saranac Lake is the sixth largest lake in the park being 8miles long and offers access by paddle to the Saranac Lake Chain allowing one to canoe or kayak to Middle & Lower Saranac Lakes, Weller Pond, Kiwassa & Oseetah Lakes and Lake Flower landing you in the village’s center. Next door Axton Landing and Stoney Creek Ponds are within the Ampersand Mountain Wilderness area providing multiple adventures either on foot or by paddle. The chapel is situated on 4 acres of land surrounded by mature growth white pines. Aside from the number of potentials for this building, there is also opportunity to build another camp or home on the property.

    1988 Greek Revival Wannabe in beautiful countryside

    Makes me wish I could afford to move back to NY. I’d love to make this building into a home, with its attractive patterning on the gable ends & the eave ornamentation. The paneling inside is superb & probably makes for a wonderful aroma. Living in the Adirondacks would be a pleasure for a winter lover.

    Super neat! I went to college near here and these woods are full of tiny gorgeous churches built by accomplished architects. St. John’s in the Wilderness Episcopal and Saint Regis Presbyterian are two great examples you can search for if interested. This one looks like it was built solely for summer church services and doesn’t appear to have electricity, heat, or plumbing. But it’s close to the road so I’d guess utilities are not far away.

    This little place would make a very fine summer retreat for someone artistic and creative in the city; or from wherever.

    If I were said weekender, I’d sympathetically add on a new wing to encompass the range of living accommodations one needs; and leave the sanctuary mostly as is. What a terrific space!

    God, that water looks heavenly. I like it cold! 😉

    Thank you for the link to St. Regis Presbyterian church. I am simply bowled over by the beauty and uniqueness of it. A search of its history revealed that it has been sold and is no longer used as a church. If it is not used as a church any longer, I wonder what its function is currently. Is it used as a family home? Resort rental? Could be anything. I bet this beautiful church has its share of stories waiting to be told. Always feel sad when a church, for whatever reason, is no longer able to serve the purpose for which it was built. Am wondering, too, if this beautiful little church would be considered as a heritage property and, while sold, the owners not be permitted to remove it, change it, and so on?
