LAKE GEORGE Once a golf course clubhouse, the Lake George Town Hall is to be dedicated in honor of the late Alexander Muratori, in a ceremony set for 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14 — which would be Muratori’s 89th birthday.
Muratori was a local entrepreneur and community leader who developed a 9-hole golf course in northwest Lake George.
The present town hall served as the golf course’s clubhouse through the mid-1970s. Muratori designed and built the two-story structure.
Muratori also founded the Lake Theatre as a jazz and progressive rock nightclub. It was situated downtown in the village, and was operating as a nightclub into the mid-1980s. Muratori passed away in 1976.
Marisa Muratori, one of his children, has served on the town board since January, and on the village board between 2002 and 2009.
She said Oct. 9 she was pleased her father was receiving the recognition, as he had a deep feeling of community.
“This is a wonderful gesture,” she said.
The dedication ceremony will be held at the lower entrance of the town hall, situated off Old Post Road. Light refreshments are to be provided following the ceremony.
