My sister and I have once again begun our Adirondack Walkabout. We are going to walk all the towns and hamlets in the park.Here is my sister, Venita, as we enter the town of Piercefield.
This is the town hall that used to be the school. Children went here through sixth grade and then on to Tupper Lake.
This is the mayor of Conifer's house; at least that is what the sign says. It also says population, 25. We bravely knocked on the door, but he probably could not hear us as another family told us he has difficulty hearing..
This is me, Gail, planted right in the middle of the Conifer Hotel and I have memories in the early 1960s of dancing to several bands at this once great place. So glad I have fond memories of this once thriving place.
This is the old mill. The creek runs in back of it; it is a well-built neat looking building.
Next we went to Mt Arab looking for a hotel my sister remembered might be there. Instead, we found these two inviting people (picture below and to the left). He is a scientist and engineer and she is an artist. She said her sister does the flowers for the Wild Center in Tupper Lake. They own Mount Arab Lodge and Cottages. They are rustic cottages with their own private beach on Eagle Crag Lake at Mount Arab. We enjoyed looking at their magnificent rustic home. If you are looking to rent a cottage in beautiful secluded area go to their website: http://mtarab.freeservers.com
Thank you Piercefield and Conifer. We had a wonderful day. And in case you did not know, my new book is out: Long Lake, Adirondack Heartland. Look on the first page of this blog to see how to purchase it. So long for now. Next stop, Big Moose!
