Historical Context:
The Adirondack Mountains are contained within the 6.1 million acres of the Adirondack Park, which includes a constitutionally protected Forest Preserve of approximately 2.3 million acres. The Adirondack Park contains thousands of streams, brooks and lakes, most famously Lake Placid; adjacent to the village of Lake Placid, two-time site of the Winter Olympic Games, the Saranac Lakes, favored by the sportsmen who made the Adirondacks famous; and Raquette Lake, the site of many of the first Great Camps.
