Pines—Sequoias [excerpt]



     The tall, spreading pine on the Hotel Champlain Golf Course gained its fame as the favorite resting-place of the late President William McKinley, during a summer visit to the hotel at Bluff Point, when he made the Hotel Champlain the “summer capitol.” A remarkable coincidence, which further distinguished the tree, was that on the very day on which the President was assassinated, the pine was struck by lightning and its upper part broken off.
