Lake George was the all-important water highway between New York and Montreal during the seven-year conflict that defined North America. It is believed that the French Commander, the Marquis de Montcalm, gathered troops at this spot to prepare for the attack against the British at Fort William Henry in 1757. This victory proved to be a pivotal moment in the history of our country.
Sponsors include the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce, Town of Bolton Landing, Warren County Tourism Department , and Lake George Mirror.
