The Life and Legacy of Charles Evans Hughes

Visit the world-class art complex The Hyde Collection Art Museum and Historic House in Charles Evans Hughes hometown and hear the stories of the long-time friendship with the Hyde, Hoopes and Beeman families that lived in this beautiful home.

Drive by Hughes' birthplace on Center Street and the First Baptist Church on Maple Street in Glens Falls on your way to enjoy lunch and the Victorian grandeur of The Queensbury Hotel. Afterwards, visit the Hughes Memorial in Glens Falls City Park located directly across from the hotel.

The afternoon can be spent aboard one of the five cruise ships that navigate the pristine waters of Lake George. Your sailing vessel will pass many beautiful mansions of Hughes' era along the way.

Overnight stay at the historic Silver Bay Association YMCA with dinner and evening talk and tour of the Helen Hughes Memorial Chapel located on the campus.

This tour can easily be extended to include additional near-by counties with Hughes connections or be broadened with additional iconic Lake George Area attractions.
