Historic New York

? ? ? ? ? Since pre-historic times, this route has served Indian hunting and war parties as they traveled between the north country and the southern region of New York State. This area was once considered the key to domination of Colonial North America. French, English and American armies often engaged one another in a deadly struggle for the control of this state.

? ? ? ? ?Once isolated and considered desolate, the northern reaches of the State were inhabited by trappers, lumbermen and miners. The Adirondack Mountains served as America's earliest source of raw material for our infant industry.

? ? ? ? ? Recent times have seen wealthy magnates using these mountains and lakes as a millionaire's resort paradise. Travel, tourism and commence have increased the steady flow of humanity moving over this important "way North."
