A Local Museum Reopens & 2 More Newsy Tidbits to Know
The Bolton Historical Museum Reopens
The Bolton Historical Museum has recently reopens its doors for the first time since 2019. They’re located at 4924 Lake Shore Drive in Bolton Landing, are open daily from 10am to 4pm through Labor Day, and admission is free. The current exhibit up is “The Thatchers: Photographing Lake George (1180 – 1950).”
Local Story Inspired Novel Coming Out This Fall
The Post Star reports that local writer Matt Witten (lives in Lake Luzerne in the summer, and Los Angeles the rest of the year) has based his upcoming novel on a Lake Luzerne woman’s story.
Tina Curl of Lake Luzerne was raising money in 2012 to drive to South Dakota to witness the execution of the man who did her wrong. Witten’s protagonist, too, undergoes a long drive for the same reason. The Necklace comes out on September 7.
Harmful Algal Blooms Return to Lake George
According to Adirondack Almanack harmful algal blooms (HABs) are back in Lake George. The Lake George Association spotted the bloom during a routine Citizens Statewide Lake Assessment Program survey, and reported it to the DEC.
It’s difficult to tell the difference between harmful and non-harmful algal blooms, so it’s best to avoid waters (and keep pets and kids out) that have them. Read more about how to identify and report HABs here.
