It seems like warmer weather is on the way, so here's a postcard of a summer scene at Saranac Inn. The Saranac Inn, originally called Hough's, and then the Prospect House, was a large, luxurious hotel located on a peninsula at the northern end of the Upper Saranac Lake in the town of Santa Clara. It was frequented by US Presidents Grover Cleveland and Chester A. Arthur, and New York Governors Charles Evans Hughes and Al Smith. It closed in 1962, and burned to the ground in 1978.
