“A Town of Recreational Beauty” For over 200 years, Schroon Lake, a quaint rural town home to about 1,880 full time residents and thousands more second homeowners and yearly visitors, has been celebrated for its friendly people, iconic Adirondack scenery, and endless recreational and cultural activities. In the late 1800’s Schroon became a destination for wealthy families from the NY Metropolitan area. By 1915, after the introduction of automobiles, people from the cities were flocking to the Schroon Lake region. Grand resorts such as Taylor’s on Schroon (later Scaroon Manor), the Leland House and the Brown Swan – along with a number of Adirondack Style Lodges – made Schroon Lake a premier summer vacation spot. This storied history can still be found throughout the Town, and we are still known for our hospitality, one of the most beautiful waterfronts in the Adirondacks, and the best year-round access to countless destinations.
