An Adirondack is a log structure named for the shelters available on the hiking trails and mountain climbing areas of the Adirondack Mountains of north eastern New York.
We have named our Adirondacks for various native tribes and locations, some of them belonging to the Six Nations that inhabit the area surrounding Lake Ontario.
