North Country Culture

 

            Do you want some great memories? 
 
            Take your dancing shoes, or sneakers to the Adirondacks!

                                   

'Root" your next Adirondack Park trip around some of these great Adirondack's culture and historical places.  You'll find yourself returning over and over again, as learning is essential to our souls and minds.  So much to do, so much to visit.   Did you know that Vice President Theodore Roosevelt was traveling through the Adirondacks when he heard he had to return because the President was shot?  Or did you know that the abolitionist, John Brown's homestead is in Lake Placid?  Some our Great Camps are still standing strong and still get the visits of the presidential and the prestigious.  Fort Ticonderoga is only one fort example of our testament to our fight for freedom.  Miners, loggers, artisans and cure cottages are another part of our rich cultural history.   Works of Robert Louis Stevenson and Winslow Homer are a few to mention!  The list goes on and on!

 

Below, for your exploration, are lists and lists ... museums, interpretive centers, heritage tours, performing arts and visual arts.  Check out our Radio Stations too!  (click here) For more museums (click here).  Please enjoy our Adirondack Park's heritage.  Many thanks! 

 

* If you are a local historian or cultural organization, please e-mail us today, we'd LOVE to share your wealth of knowledge.  Our surfers would love to enjoy an historical tale rich with heritage.  It is simply amazing how our ancestors developed our country!  Please patronized our cultural colleagues.

Food for Thought:   

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge.

Cosmic Religion : With Other Opinions and Aphorisms (1931) by Albert Einstein, p. 97; also in Transformation : Arts, Communication, Environment (1950) by Harry Holtzman, p. 138
