Historical Context

Abby and Will Csaplar met in the 1950's on Silver Bay in Lake George and have vacationed there ever since. Their passion for the Lake led to an incredible collection of Lake George images-including stereoviews, post cards, photographs-as well as souveniers and ephemera. Lake George is located in the Champlain Valley watershed along the southeastern portion of the Adirondacks. Its natural beauty and important role in the early history of our country have made it one of the most popular vacation destinations in New York State.

Scope of Collection

This collection contains images of Lake George found in stereoviews, postcards, photographs, maps, publications and ephemera collected over 20 years by Abby and Will Csaplar and donated in 2012.
