History of the Lodge
The history of the Lodge is the story of Francis and Audrey Foody, both born in the twenties and both children of the Great Depression.
Francis was born in Fultonville, NY and worked in his family’s store. Audrey was born in Watertown and grew up a few miles from Lake Ontario. Francis was a WW2 Veteran. After the war, he went to Clarkson College, became an electrical engineer and worked for General Electric in Schenectady. Audrey studied education and music at Potsdam, NY and received a degree in teaching. In the early 60’s, Francis was transferred to GE Ordinance in Pittsfield, Mass. Living near Schenectady, Francis purchased a small airplane, and on nice days, he would fly from a pasture next to his home to the Pittsfield airport where he kept a second car.
This went on for a few years until he and Audrey moved their family closer to the Berkshires. They purchased this scenic, peaceful property and built this home. They loved looking across their fields of wildflowers and the wooded valley to the rolling hills of the Berkshires. They enjoyed hunting and fishing, cross-country skiing, motorcycling, canoeing, and hiking, and they thought this was the perfect base camp to their adventures. Their greatest joy was to share their lifestyle with family and friends.
