Overview


For more than a century and a half, the town of North Elba has been one of the most visited places in the Adirondack region. Its proximity to the beautiful High Peaks region and Whiteface Mountain has made it a four-season vacation destination. North Elba and Whiteface Mountain contains more than two hundred rare photographs depicting the mountain, the village of Lake Placid, Mirror and Placid Lakes, Ray Brook, the Cascade Lakes, Pontiac Bay, and Wilmington Notch. Accompanied by detailed narrative, these historical views reveal the people, life, and events of the town from 1875 to 1950, among them Franklin Delano Roosevelt attending the Whiteface Mountain Memorial Highway opening in 1935.
