As a Thank You to the community, the North Creek Depot Museum presented a free program at Tannery Pond about the history of skiing in the region. About 130 people attended the program and the museum received more than $500 in contributions and gained several members. We thank Tannery Pond for helping making this event such a success.
The program featured:
- a presentation by Jeremy Davis, the award winning author of Lost Ski Areas of the Southern Adirondacks,
-a panel discussion with several life-time and life-long skiers who remember many of the original ski areas, and
- an opportunity for the audience to ask a few questions or relay their own memories of the early days of skiing.
The program was followed by a wine, cider and cheese reception.
We thank Tannery Pond for helping making this event such a success.

The Museum Shop:
The Museum Shop is a delightful, though relatively small, place to shop for gifts or souvenirs, including locally made pine scented candles, hand carved napkin rings, books for young and not so young, and Gore Mountain garnet crafted by J & J Brown Studios. The Shop also carries a wide variety of gifts, books, postcards and everything in between. The Shop’s hours are the same as the Museum’s. Profits from the Museum Shop help support the Museum.
