Silver Bay Association ComplexEdit profile
The Silver Bay Association Complex is an inn and related buildings located in the hamlet of Silver Bay, New York, United States. It began as a farmhouse, and in the 1890s it was expanded and became a lodge capable of supporting 80-100 people. In 1897, Silas Paine, a Standard Oil executive, vacationed at the resort and decided to buy a portion of land adjacent to the property. Between 1898, Silas had a large resort addition linked to the original house, and between 1900-1901 he added several cottages to the complex. The structure was bought by the YMCA in 1904, and assumed its final form, well-preserved form during expansions between 1925-1926 under the supervision of architect William E. Clark (1882–1935). The complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 20, 1980. Architecturally, it is described as being in the Queen Ann style.
