People, Places, Things: Camp Sagamore Caretaker Bob Heinsler

Listen to this story
Every so often during The 8 O'Clock Hour, we'll introduce you to a North Country resident. It could be your neighbor or a friend--someone with an odd job or a story to tell. Today, we meet a man who is the caretaker of one of the grandest of the Adirondack great camps. Bob Heinsler is the superintendent at Great Camp Sagamore, near Raquette Lake. He's one of the behind-the-scenes heroes of the Great Camps. For the last 20 years, Heinsler's job has been maintaining and restoring a complex of 27 buildings, deep in the woods. All of them a century old. He gave Todd Moe a tour of some of his favorite places at Sagamore.
