The Lake George Area has an undeniable place in American history. From war to commerce, America would not be as it is without the accomplishments made in the region. Local museums, historic sites, and crucial forts spanning the region tell a chapter of the American story.

The Lake George Area was fundamental in the formation of today’s United States of America. It’s a battlefield where the seeds of American independence were planted, and it’s the location of America’s Original Vacation. Today, historic sites and museums are some of the top attractions in Lake George displaying the trials and triumphs of the people who built the Lake George Area. You can stroll the battlements of a French and Indian War-era fort, where you can watch a cannon blast off or the reenactment of the Battle of Fort William Henry. Attend Memorial Day and Fourth of July events to give thanks to those who have fought and died for the United States of America. You can view exhibits displaying the ingenuity of the region’s past population, or admire the brush strokes of world-renowned art geniuses such as Rembrandt and Picasso at The Hyde Collection. Without the people of the past, our country and the Lake George Area wouldn’t be the same.
