Lake George Historical Association & Museum

Lake George Historical Association & Museum

When those interested in forming an historical society came together in the early 1960’s they did so with the common goal of saving the Old Warren County Court House from the “wrecking ball.” Located at Canada and Amherst Streets in Lake George Village this 1845 brick structure became the perfect home for the Lake George Historical Association and its collection of historical artifacts - and with that LGHA established the Lake George Historical Association Museum.

We hope you enjoy our work.
