On the third day of Saranac Lake-mas, your museum gave to you... French Hill! French Hill is one of the earliest neighborhoods in Saranac Lake, and encompasses east-west streets McClelland, James, Charles, Prospect Avenue, McIntyre, Neil, and Olive Streets and Arnold Drive; and north-south streets Hope, Fairview Avenue, William, Virginia, and McComb. It is about forty acres in extent. In this 1902 photograph, Prospect Avenue runs up from Broadway to McComb Street.
