Kopa Chuck Lodge-Continuation of Summer Camps on Horsehead Bay Thanks to an Anonymous Reader

     Here are a few bits on Kopa Chuck, if you don't already have them.  The files are numbered in chronological order.  As noted in the newspaper advertisement in attached file #7, in addition to the lodge, Kopa Chuck also had a number of individual cabins.  In the late 1950s when the land was being turned into Kopachuck State Park, the cabins were sold and Spadoni Brothers moved several of them to different locations.  One of the cabins they moved still exists as a house on the hill above Spadoni's equipment yard.  Annette Bannon has several photographs of that cabin being trucked up the hill.  The truck used still exists, though it's now just a rusting hulk.
