Historic Markers Event April 29 - 2pm

National Historic Markers Day Kickoff Event

The Lake George Battlefield Park Alliance and the Lake George Historical Association, along with the Town and Village of Lake George and Lake George Junior-Senior High School, celebrated National Historic Marker Day on Friday, April 26 starting at 2 PM, by unveiling a freshly repainted marker outside the “Old Courthouse” at 290 Canada Street.

Friday’s marker unveiling in Lake George village served to kick off a partnership among municipal officials, the school district, and the two historical organizations that will clean and repaint, where needed, the dozens of historic signs dispersed throughout the town’s 33 square miles.
These signs inform visitors and guests alike of the important events and people which have helped to shape our community and our nation!

"Restoring these signs helps the public to better understand the significant events that occurred in the Lake George region.

John DiNuzzo

President,

Lake George Battlefield Park Alliance

John has been the President of the The Lake George Battlefield Park Alliance for 3 years. The LGBPA is a volunteer-driven organization which manages the Battlefield Park’s Visitor Center and sponsors events throughout the year that educate the public about the site, the Lake George Region, and their unique history.

“Part of Lake George’s charm is its blend of unsurpassed beauty, recreational opportunities, and the heritage we’re so proud of. The historical markers collectively tell tourists the story of all that’s happened here, so it’s appropriate to have signage which attracts their attention by being easy to read and appealing to the eye.”
