Renovated museum reopens

SCHROON LAKE - The Schroon-North Hudson Historical Museum has reopened for the first time since 2007 with a brand new look.

The museum board of directors have invited the public to visit and see the improvements, noticeably the new front porch, and not so noticeably a brand new foundation giving the museum lots more storage room.

Money is now being raised for an addition to house an office for historical records that keep increasing.

The museum is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. during July and August. It will close for the season Sept. 6.

The museum will host a Sunday afternoon lecture series this summer, each beginning at 2 p.m. Lectures include: July 12, Amy Godine; July 26, Chris Woodward; Aug. 2, Winfred Bernhardt and Michael Murdock; Aug. 16, William Bibby.

Mark Bowie, Adirondack photographer, will present "In Stoddard's Footsteps" at the Boathouse on Aug. 10.

Other events include Whimsical Hats and Old Fashioned Ice Tea on July 23 and Dessert with the Departed on Aug. 27.
