About Owaissa Club
In New York State, The Adirondacks are the premier destination for people who love the outdoors. More visitors travel to the region each year, with a growing number seeking to own a second home as an escape from city life or suburbia. To address that demand, First Columbia has begun construction on Phase One of the Owaissa Club, a new townhouse vacation community on the banks of the AuSable River’s famous West Branch.
The development takes its name from the original Owaissa Club. Formed in 1920, the Club served as a place in Wilmington for youngsters to meet and play in a safe and fraternal environment. Youths enjoyed row boats and canoes on the AuSable, movies, music and literature, as well as outdoor fireplaces. All of those things have endured at the Lake Everest Park, which is situated on the current Club’s neighboring property. New
Club members will be the closest residential units to this hidden gem of the Adirondacks.
The current Owaissa Club has parallel goals to its progenitor; bringing twenty-seven families to continue a tradition of friendship into the twenty-first century.
