What We Collect
Historic Saranac Lake collects printed and manuscript materials, maps, photographs, film, video and audio tapes, paintings, artifacts, ephemera, and other items which were created in, used in, or related to the Saranac Lake area, as defined by Saranac Lake Central School District.
Areas of Particular Interest:
What We do NOT Collect
We do not collect materials on the general history of the Adirondacks, the history of communities outside of the Saranac Lake Central School District, or TB treatment in other locations, except in cases where they belonged to or relate to notable persons or events in the Saranac Lake area. This is intended to reduce redundancy with collections of other local institutions with more appropriate collections scope and expertise.
