LONG LAKE — Hallie Bond, former curator of the Adirondack Museum’s boat collection, one of the finest in the country, will be presenting a slide show talk on Long Lake Guideboat builders. The program is being presented by the Long Lake Historical Society in the Long Lake Town Hall, Saturday evening, Aug. 10 at 7:30 p.m.
Along with the talk, guideboats will be on display in the Town Hall including a Chase boat, one of the oldest existing guideboats from the 1800s, and a boat supposedly built by Merlin Austin for the Terrell Family who have been vacationing on Long Lake since the early 1900s. Gordon Fisher and Bunny Austin will be available on Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013 to answer any and all questions on building a guideboat.
Save the date, Aug. 10, and come to the Long Lake Town Hall to enjoy Hallie Bond’s informative talk on guideboats, the extraordinary contribution Long Lakers made to the lure of Adirondack rivers and lakes.
