As a Thank You to the community, the North Creek Depot Museum will be presenting a FREE program about the history of skiing in the region. The program will feature:
- a presentation by Jeremy Davis, 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 questions or relay their own memories of the early days of skiing.
The program will be followed by a wine, cider and cheese reception.
The North Creek Depot Museum is a Theodore Roosevelt Historic Site, and tells the exciting History and Heritage of the Gore Mountain Region, through its exhibits and model train diorama. An experience not to be missed.
With the completion of rail service to North Creek in 1871, and the construction of the present station (1872), North Creek welcomed the industrialists of the Gilded Age , sent Theodore Roosevelt on his way to Buffalo to be sworn in as the 26th President of the United States; received and dispatched shipments of grain, garnet, iron, titanium and Sears & Roebuck homes; welcomed skiers in winter and families seeking adventure and beauty of this land in other seasons; becoming the hub of both summer and winter activity.
The Owens House Administrative Annex with it’s Education Center hosts several events each year – see the current schedule in the Special Events Section.
The museum is closed for the season. We hope you will visit us during the summer of 2015.
$2 adult, $1 children and members free.

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.
