Chances are you've never heard of Camp Mohawk in the Berkshires, but you might just know the big screen camp it inspired.

Actor/director Michael Showalter spent several summers at Camp Mohawk in Lanesborough when he was growing up and his time there inspired the fictional Camp Firewood in the cult-classic movie Wet Hot American Summer.

Now you can own a piece of movie history, not to mention American history, by purchasing Camp Mohawk.

Clearly, the owner is motivated to sell the property, which includes five structures on the National Register of Historic Places.

The main farmhouse, attached horse barn, two cow barns and a corn crib are considered worthy of preservation due to their historical significance to the area. Considering the property was built as a farm in 1720, it has nearly 300 years of history to choose from.

First owned by Col. Jonathan Pettibone, a French and Indian War veteran, the property has been listed with TKG Real Estate by current owners, the Schulmans, who last ran it as a summer camp over a decade ago.

Many of the camp buildings are a bit run down and nowhere near ready for campers, but the land itself is gorgeously green, boasts nearly 1 mile of waterfront access and has huge potential for the next owners.

There is a 2,300-square-foot house where the new owners could live, plus plenty of camp buildings throughout the 102 acres to re-build, re-model or convert into something else entirely.
