Post subject:  Killarney Great Mountain Lake - History of Lodge on Island?

We were in Killarney last week, staying on site #158. We were interested in the old buildings on the island to the SW. The buildings look older and some in need of repair. There were many trees cut down and many more dead ones still standing.
Does anyone know the history of these buildings? It looks like an old lodge
Does anyone know it's current status and why so many dead/cut down trees?

I believe it was in 2006-7 that the spruce budworm went through Killarney in wide swaths killing balsam firs in its path. We paddled by the island in 2008 having stayed on the campsite near the cliffs near Little Mountain Lake. Huge balsams were already dead in the water and a path of dead trees about 50 yds wide cut right across the island, having come first from the west shore. A few years later I visited a one of these destroyed areas on the shore of Johnnie Lake and the young balsams were already 6-8 feet high. Nature waits for no one.
