Hunter Lodge - Olive Point
History and Style:
This lodge was managed by Mr. and Mrs. Francis Moginot, a couple from Massachusetts with ties to the Murphy family of Perry Point. The Moginots brought affluent boys from the Boston area to Oliver Point to spend the summer learning how to “rough it” in the backwoods of the Kennebcasis Valley. The main lodge was built in 1937 by the young campers as one of many projects that occupied their Canadian holiday. Boys would travel by boat from Boston to Saint John on the Eastern Steamship Line and then by car from Saint John to the Peninsula. The cost of one season, which ran from July 1 to August 31, was $200. The lodge has changed very little since it last played host to campers, and is lovingly maintained by the Moginot family who return every summer.
