Long Lake and Raquette Lake have a robust business community that works together and collaborates with the Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department year-round. With events being the cornerstone of the Parks and Recreation Department, we couldn’t pull off all we do without the volunteers and commitment of our business community. Our businesses are famous for donating time, materials and helping co-sponsor events,  art installations, planting flowers, keeping our community beautiful and our businesses showcase our community pride and strong Adirondack spirit. There are ample opportunities to promote and support the variety of programs within our towns.  If you don’t know our businesses and volunteers, you should! 
 
Please support our local business sponsors. They keep our community ticking! Their support is vital and if you see us mentioning them in social media and on our website, you can be assured they are part of our ongoing community building that continues to grow as we see new businesses open and grow even throughout the very economically challenging pandemic. We thank our businesses for their support despite the hardships and obstacles so many faced.
 
If you are a local business owner or volunteer and want to get involved, don’t be shy! We’d love to have you!  Please email longlake@mylonglake.com to receive information on our advertising programs, social media promotions, sponsorships, events news and more.

Pomeroy Grant Awards Funding for Five Historic Signs

Five New York State Historic Markers were awarded to the Town of Long Lake
funded by a grant from the William G. Pomeroy Foundation for the New York State Historic Marker Program.
 
The five signs were awarded to commemorate four locations in Raquette Lake including the Raquette Lake Rail Bed, Raquette Lake Hotel, Raquette Lake Train Station and the Raquette Lake General Store and Supply.  The sign in Long Lake will commemorate W.W. Durant’s Buttercup Steamboat which was deliberately sunk in 1885 and recovered in 1959.
 
Grants were submitted by Alexandra Roalsvig from the Long Lake Tourism Department with collaboration, writing and research by Hamilton County Historian, Eliza Jane Darling.  Special thanks to Jim Dillon of Raquette Lake for working with the town to identify appropriate locations for the signs and for granting permission to have the signs installed on Raquette Lake Supply property. 
 
These historic signs commemorate a by-gone era of train and steamboat travel when both Raquette Lake and Long Lake were destinations for travelers heading to the restorative lakes, woods and mountains for grand summer vacations. In the event it is safe to gather there will be a dedication celebration slated for the summer of 2021.
 
The William G. Pomeroy Foundation is a grant-making foundation based in Syracuse, N.Y. One of its initiatives is helping communities celebrate their history. The program commemorates historic people, places or things during the years 1740 to 1920. The Town of Long Lake received $5700 for five signs slated to be installed in the spring of 2021.

In Long Lake the three locations will be, Mt Sabattis Recreation Area, Fishing Brook Access, and the Cedarlands Easement area. In Raquette Lake the two areas are Golden Beach and Brown’s Tract.

The submission window will be open from now until September 30th, and the grand prize for each community will be having your photo framed and displayed in the community for one year.
