The arrival of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad at Lake George in 1882 had a significant impact on life in the region. Early vacationers often arrived in rail cars direct from New York City and Albany. While the rich and famous relaxed at lakeside resorts like the Fort William Henry Hotel there was no shortage of retreats for everyone. For many years, a track curved from the railroad station onto the nearby steamboat pier. In a few steps, rail travelers venturing farther up the lake could board the waiting sidewheelers, Sagamore and Horicon. This photo was taken only a few yards from where you are standing.
