Bolton Landing and Lake George offer beauty, historic buildings, and stories all in one spectacular setting. We will start this special summer day with a visit to the Bolton Historical Museum, housed in the adaptively reused 1890 Church of the Blessed Sacrament, to view a vibrant new exhibit of historic Lake George photographs. These photos were taken by locals Jule Thatcher and her father Fred Thatcher from the 1870s to the 1960s and feature a intimate view of Lake George’s past. After lunch at the lakeside Roger’s Park, we will enjoy a leisurely and informative, private cruise along the beautiful Bolton shoreline, hearing about local history from long-time resident Ted Caldwell. You’ll see and hear about architectural gems like the famed Resort and its storied bridge, and Homeland, the renovated, early 20th century summer home of renowned opera singer Louise Homer and her husband Sydney.
This tour is led by long-time resident Ted Caldwell. The tour begins at 10 AM and ends at 4 PM.
The fee is $50 for AARCH members and $60 for non-members.
