Historical Context

The Great Sacandaga Lake, created between 1920 and 1930, is located in the Adirondack area. With the creation of the Great Sacandaga Lake, came the dislocation of communities, cemeteries, and highways. One community affected was Sacandaga Park, known as the Coney Island of the North (c.1880 – 1930). This hamlet, accessible by railroad service, had many hotels, cottages, a golf course, amusement area, sport events, theatre, and general outdoor activities.

Scope of Collection
