Pakatakan Artists Colony Historic District is a national historic district located at Arkville in Delaware County, New York. The district contains 33 contributing buildings and two contributing structures. It consists of a small mountainside collection of studios and residences clustered about the original Pakatakan Inn. It is associated with the Catskill Mountain School of landscape artists and is an extremely well preserved collection of unusual Shingle Style and other wood frame seasonal buildings. Among those associated with the colony are Alexander Helwig Wyant (1836–1892), J. Francis Murphy (1853-?), and Edward Lloyd Field (1856–1914).[2]
