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
