Lake George Historical Association and Museum [NY]

The Lake George Historical Association seeks to preserve and share the history of the Lake George region, New York. To this end, the society operates a museum of local history, located within an 1845 courthouse. The museum contains the original courtroom and jail cells. Collection highlights include a plaster sculpture by John Rogers (1829-1904); a 1756 powder horn; and a chemical tank, which preceded modern day fire extinguishers.

The museum offers exhibits and tours. The website offers 10 historical photographs.
