Mrs. C. M. Smith, of Saranac Lake, has sold her cottage in that village and purchased the Phil King farm between Paul Smith's and Gabriels. The place will be known as "Pinehurst Inn."

Malone Farmer, April 28, 1926

Some time ago The Farmer referred to the fact that the original Phil. King farm of 125 acres near Gabriels had been sold to Mrs. Carrie M. Smith, of Saranac Lake, formerly of St. Regis Falls, who will spend $2,000 in repairs and improvements, will have cottages for tourists, and a store for tourists' supplies and curios. She has named the place Pine Haven. The King farm was originally 50 acres and was cleared by Phil King, who added to it and made it a productive property. In 1869 Mr. King purchased the Paul Smith farm of 205 acres where he spent the remainder of his life. J. Q. King, son of Phil King, later came to own his father's original farm property. The house was remodeled and modernized by J. Q. King in 1913 and is a handsome property. Part of the 18-foot kitchen is the original home which Phil King built in the wilderness.
