About the event
Adirondack Lore says that our beautiful region remained unexplored wilderness until well into the 19th century. The story of Native Americans, early EuroAmerican explorers and surveyors says otherwise. Join us for an exploration of the people, surveys and maps that, decades before Verplanck Colvin, helped make the Adirondacks one of the hottest frontiers in the young nation.
Pete Nelson is an avid writer, lecturer and Adirondack history buff whose articles appear regularly in numerous regional publications including the Adirondack Almanack, Adirondack Life and the Adirondack Explorer. Pete is a mathematics teacher and history lecturer at North Country Community College. He is currently writing a book on early Adirondack surveyors, a passion that combines his love of Adirondack history with his love of mathematics.
This program will be outside on the lawn. Please wear a mask and bring your own chair.
