Thomas Jefferson Quote About Lake George

If you find yourself admiring the endless beauty of Lake George, wishing someone could put into words what you feel when you take it all in... rest assured - Thomas Jefferson has!

Thomas Jefferson Bust

It's true Thomas Jefferson loved Lake George, too. Here is a quote taken from the late president Jefferson back on May 31, 1791:

"Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw; formed by a contour of mountains into a basin... finely interspersed with islands, its water limpid as crystal, and the mountain sides covered with rich groves... down to the water-edge: here and there precipices of rock to checker the scene and save it from monotony."
-- Thomas Jefferson, May 31, 1791
