The legend on the side reads, "In 1869, Alfred Smiley discovered a pristine mountain lake in the Shawangunks. Inspired by its peace and beauty, he and his twin, Albert, who bought the property, built Mohonk Mountain House in the Quaker tradition. A haven for their guests, Mohonk was founded for the purposes of relaxation, enhancement of healthful practices and communion with nature. The Mountain House is architecturally significant, with its fine porches, handsome wood interiors, and imposing stone structures. It is historically significant in that it hosted presidents, world religious leaders, and a series of conferences of Friends of the Indians and also a series on International Arbitration. Today, Mohonk is a National Historic Landmark, preserving its tradition of excellence."
