Update: Iconic Lake George Sign Found

Last week, we told you about the mysteriously missing Lake George landmark on Beach Road. Over the weekend, we received some '5-1 Great' news when a man from Lake George alerted the Warren County Sheriff's Office that he had retrieved the iconic landmark.

News Channel 13 was among the first to report that Phillip Underwood from Lake George found the sign after he posted this to his Facebook page on Saturday.

Village Hero Talks to GNA

WGNA's Brian and Chrissy interviewed Underwood on their morning show on Monday. He told the show that he didn't even know the sign was missing when he went out for a walk with his dogs.

He told GNA that he saw the missing sign leaning against a tree by the Prospect Mountain Walking Trail and that whoever took it must have had some help. He estimated it to be about 4-5 feet tall and weighing nearly 100 pounds.

And yes, Underwood admitted that it would have made a great addition to his man cave, but he ultimately did the right thing and contacted the Warren County Sheriffs, telling GNA, "Everyone was really thankful."

"It's a small community," Underwood added, "and I didn't realize how much (the missing sign) affected a lot of people."

Stunning Drone Pics Show Remains Of Frontier Town In The ADKS

Many of us in the Capital Region have fond childhood memories while visiting our grand Adirondack Mountains. Some remember the early years of Storytown (now known as the Great Escape), some were partial to Water Slide World, while others enjoyed the horses, buggies, and stagecoach bandits at Frontier Town.

Frontier Town, located in Schroon Lake, NY, was started back in 1952 by a man named Arthur Bensen. Bensen designed it to be a theme park for kids and a big playground for adults. For more than 40 years, Frontier Town and its trick riders, bucking broncos, horses and buggies, and stagecoach bandits, was an Adirondack destination.

As other attractions in the Lake George area grew more popular, thinning crowds forced Frontier Town to shut down in 1998, and for 20 years it sat vacant, abandoned, and neglected.

Eventually, New York State would buy the land and redevelop the rotting theme park and
in the fall of 2018, the site was reopened.

The former Frontier Town is now a New York State Park where guests can camp, hike, take trails by horse and bike, and picnic. Certain trails are off-limits for guests, although many are open year-round.

Several of the original Frontier Town signs remain on the property. The entranceway to Frontier Town now stands as a deluxe rest stop with food, souvenirs, and bathrooms and the space can be rented out to host parties.

Most have never viewed the Adirondacks quite like this and we were allowed to publish these oddly beautiful photos high above Frontier Town thanks to Adirondack Drone.
