The exterior of Hutchin’s Lodge in Johnsburg

Hutchins Lodge, a boarding house in Johnsburg, was the residence of the Roosevelt family, distant relatives of both the presidential Roosevelts and John Thurman, the settler of Johnsburg. Almost every woman in Johnsburg worked at Hutchins Lodge – as maids, waitresses, and cooks for the people from New York City who came to stay for the summer. Circa 1900.
