All Aboard: The Last History Boat Tour of the Season is Thursday

The Steamer The Effingham

The Steamer The Effingham

We know you have been interested in taking a cruise of the lake and learning more about its history… we know you are a bit of a procrastinator…but ya better hurry, ‘cause Thursday is the last tour of the season.

So  get  on down to the Chamber of Commerce -- before 11 am  -- to reserve your tickets before the boat takes off from the Word of Life Dock  at 11 am tour.

 Hosted by the talented and knowledgeable Tammy Whitty-Brown, the Executive Director of the Schroon Lake Area Chamber of Commerce,  you’ll leave the tour knowing a heck of a lot about the golden age of Schroon, when steamers ferried passengers to the lake's glorious resorts and folks spent the entire summer here, dancing and romancing!

 So get crackin'.  More details are available from the Chamber of Commerce at 518-532-7675.
