The Hedges is a historic home and Adirondack Great Camp located at Blue Mountain Lake in Hamilton County, New York. The property consists of 30 buildings and structures and many related site features. From about 1890 to 1920, it was the seasonal home of Hiram B. Duryea and from this period nine buildings and structures remain. In 1920, it was purchased by Richard J. Collins and converted to an Adirondack resort. The Main Lodge complex was built in 1882; the main block is a two story, wood framed building with a mansard roof. The Stone Lodge was built 1900-1903 and is a two story gambrel roofed building.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.[1]
