First settled in 1819, in what was then untouched wilderness, Saranac Lake grew slowly throughout the early 1800s, its economy based primarily on logging and the hosting and guiding of the "sports" who came to hunt and fish. The early 1900s saw Saranac Lake's emergence as a fashionable destination resort. In its heyday, the village was served by two railroads, and more than thirty taxi companies. Today the village has developed into a family resort destination. This category may contain sites in topical sub-categories as well as links to other geographic categories.
