Lake George Area

Historic sites and museums are some of the top attractions displaying the trials and triumphs of the people who built the Lake George Area. Stroll the battlements of a French and Indian War-era, watch the firing of cannon and reenactments of the battles, and view exhibits displaying the ingenuity of the region’s past population. Without the contributions of the people of the past, our country and the Lake George Area wouldn’t be the same.
