Summer Series Lecture on Hotel Saranac

The Franklin County Historical & Museum Society will be hosting Charles Alexander, who will be presenting his research on the Hotel Saranac in Saranac Lake, NY, on Monday, July 13 at 7:00pm at the Schryer Center for Historical & Genealogical Research (behind the House of History), 51 Milwaukee St., Malone. The lecture is free and open to the public; donations are appreciated.

Hotel Saranac was opened in 1927 by Apollos "Paul" Smith in the tradition of fine city hotels of the day, with a Grand Ballroom and Grand Hall opening onto a terrace overlooking the village and scenic mountains. From 1961 to 2007, the hotel was operated by Paul Smith's College as a teaching hotel for students of Hotel & Restaurant Management and Culinary Arts. The tradition of this elegant hotel continues now under private ownership.
