Motivated by Christ's Love
During the summer of 2002 the Beaver Camp board of directors became aware of an opportunity surrounding the former Seeber horse farm in the town of Lowville. The property had been sitting idle for several years when it was purchased from the mortgage holder by the Pratt Northam Foundation, a local philanthropic organization. Pratt Northam's vision was to preserve as much of the property as possible for uses and programs which would benefit the community.
While numerous organizations and individuals had expressed an interest in owning the property, none appealed to the Pratt Northam board as being willing and/or capable of fulfilling the purposes they had established that is, until AMCA.
In 2007 AMCA took official ownership the part of the property that includes the buildings and part of the back hill. However, an equally large portion of the property is now owned by the county and hosts the Lewis County Jefferson Community College Education Center. We are registered as a nonprofit charitable 501(c)(3) organization. Donations to Maple Ridge Center, Inc. are tax deductible.
Programs include the Tug Hill Bluegrass Festival, Harvest of the Arts and Snow Park. Maple Ridge Center also hosts the Office of the Aging Meal Program, Emmaus Church Services and a variety of private functions including wedding and business luncheons.
