Lake George Historical Association:
Dedicated to Preserving our History
A Non-Profit Organization
The Lake George Historical Association (LGHA) is a not-for-profit (501c 3) organization dedicated to the preservation of the history of the Lake George region.
A Home for Historical Artifacts
The Museum is a popular attraction and provides a means of discovery to the rich past of this historical region; therefore, we at the Historical Association would like to introduce you, through this website, to what the Museum and the Lake George region have in store for you if you have a chance to come and visit.
The LGHA has a Rich History
The LGHA originated in 1895 and prospered and evolved into the New York State Historical Society. In 1964 a dedicated group of individuals formed what is the current Lake George Historical Association.
Located in the Historic 1845 Warren County Courthouse
When the Historical Society came together in the early 1960’s they did so with the common goal of saving the Old Warren County Court House from the “wrecking ball.” Located at Canada and Amherst Streets in Lake George Village this 1845 brick structure became the perfect home for the Lake George Historical Association and its collection of historical artifacts - and with that LGHA established the Lake George Historical Association Museum.
LGHA Museum Hours and Tours
The museum is open regularly throughout the summer season and year-round, LGHA offers special programs and events. Private tours are available. View our current hours on our Contact Page. We hope you have an interesting and enjoyable visit!.
