Once a one-room school house built for the children of a local tannery and sawmill in the late 1800's, the Peck family kept the original desks and furnishings once the school closed in 1959. The building now offers tours as well as a nature trail identifying local plants and trees, and boasts a popular observation platform for viewing wildlife.

When hiking down this easy path up back from this small lake, I met an Adirondack guide and his daughter. She grasped a lump of coal she had found from the encampment where "Drums Along The Mohawk" had been filmed. Dad knew his history! The Adirondacks encourage a great curiousity about both nature and our past, in every turn.
(Hint: Her piece of coal dated back to 1939)
