The Inlet Historical Society will present its first program of the summer, “Before There Was Inlet, Part One,” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 26, in the Inlet Town Hall at Arrowhead Park in Inlet.
Charles Herr will discuss the lives, plans and hopes of the owners of the Inlet’s land before settlers, transportation, and civic needs resulted in the town’s separation from Morehouse in 1902.
The territory’s owners included the original namesake of Sagamore Lake, a founder of Port Leyden and a famous mathematician who traveled the Adirondacks for twenty years beginning in the 1830’s and who once owned all of Raquette Lake.
Also, learn what may be still inaccurate about the statutory boundary of the Town of Inlet as defined by state law in 1902.
The program will follow a format of comparing contemporary images with past photos of the same locations.
More information is available by calling the Inlet Tourism Office at (315) 357-5501.
The Inlet Historical Society is a 501(c) (3) charitable organization.
