Beautiful displays of history right in the old train depot! It really is an excellent and eclectic collection spanning many years. A donation is not required but is suggested.

The Historical Society Depot provides a good introduction to the major attraction of Lake Placid. A local volunteer is on hand to provide information and background and a short informative video is worth viewing.

Lovely visit in 2014. Many interesting items of past history. Spent a lot of time viewing all the treasures in this museum. Very friendly volunteers are there to answer any questions you may have and they are very informative. Well worth your time.
