State police are investigating a burglary that happened at the historic White Pine Camp last week.

Meanwhile, the camp's management is offering a reward for the return of the stolen goods or information that helps lead police to an arrest.

Anne Warner, manager at White Pine Camp, told the Enterprise the burglary happened between about 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23 and the morning of Wednesday, Oct. 24. She said in an email that a person or persons entered two cabins on the camp's property and "stole a considerable amount of furnishings and household items.

"A love seat, end tables, area rugs, and lamps are some of the items that were taken," Warner wrote.

Warner said an exact monetary value has not been determined for the stolen goods, but it could be around $10,000. She said the suspect or suspects would have needed a full-size pickup or would have had to make multiple trips.

A full cord of firewood was also stolen, Warner said, as well as other small items like dish soap, toiletries and bath towels.

State police are investigating the burglary and went to the property on Wednesday after the theft was discovered. Calls to state police investigators hadn't been returned as of press time this morning.

"White Pine Camp has enhanced its security as a result of the break-in," Warner said.

White Pine Camp is located on Osgood Pond in Paul Smiths, in the town of Brighton. It was the "Summer White House" for President Calvin Coolidge in 1928.
