For the first program on its 2013 summer schedule, the Inlet Historical Society, a 501(c) (3) charitable organization, presents “Before There Was Inlet, Part One” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday evening, June 26, in the Inlet Town Hall at Arrowhead Park in Inlet.
Charles Herr will discuss the lives, plans and hopes of the owners of the Inlet’s lands before settlers’ transportation and civic needs resulted in the town’s separation from Morehouse in 1902. The territory’s owners included the original namesake of Sagamore Lake, a founder of Port Leyden and a famous mathematician who traveled the Adirondacks for 20 years beginning in the 1830s and who once owned all of Raquette Lake. Also, learn what may be still inaccurate about the statutory boundary of the Town of Inlet as defined by state law in 1902.
The program will follow a popular format of comparing contemporary images with current photos of the same locations, the Society invites you to join us on Wednesday evening June 26. As with all Society programs, members and non-members alike are invited.
