Inscription.  In 1983, Hillwood commissioned architects to create a structure to house part of Marjorie Post's collection of American Indian objects that she had acquired to decorate Camp Topridge, her retreat in Upstate New York, and would later donate to the Smithsonian Institution. The building's design replicates the style of the grand, early twentieth-century Adirondack estates. Today, the building is used for special exhibitions and programs.
 
Erected by Hillwood Estate Museum & Gardens. (Marker Number 210.)
