BLUE MT. LAKE - Join the Adirondack Museum for Hidden History Tours at
its Collection Storage and Study Center here Friday, Sept. 7. Tours
will be held approximately every half hour from 11 a.m. through 4 p.m.

These special curator-led tours will highlight the museum’s famous
boat collection, keeping with the boating theme as the 90-miler or
“Adirondack Canoe Classic” passes through Blue Mountain Lake Friday.

Tours will also feature the rustic furniture collection, as the 25th
Rustic Fair begins Sept. 8 at the museum. Conservator and Collections
Manager Doreen Alessi and Curator Hallie Bond will lead the tours.

The Collections Storage and Study Center holds an amazing array of
objects from the Adirondacks. Collections consist of boats, including
powerboats, canoes, kayaks, guideboats and unusual boats; traditional
and rustic furniture; hand tools and machinery; large vehicles,
including horse-drawn carriages and sleighs, snowmobiles, fire trucks
and a Jitterbug; maple sugaring equipment; ice harvesting tools; and
agricultural artifacts.

Tours are free to museum members and $10 for non-members.
Pre-registration is not necessary; simply register at the start of the
tour. The Collections Storage and Study Center is located at 8757
State Route 30, Blue Mountain Lake.
