Old Ski Movie Night at TPCC

The  North Creek Railway Depot Preservation Association is happy to announce that “Old Ski Movie Night” is returning on February 9, 2019, 7:00 PM, at Tannery Pond Community Center.

The films that were shown were produced and filmed in the 1930’s by William Gluesing of General Electric “House of Magic” fame.  Bill was one of the early promoters of Gore Mtn. skiing. The films were shown as far as New York City to promote the early Snow Trains and skiing in the North Creek region.  According to event organizer Greg Schaefer, movie titles this year will include “Camp Out at the ’32 Olympics” as well as favorites “Ride Up-Slide Down,” “Cloud Trail,” and “First Snow Train.”  Greg Schaefer will provide an historical perspective.

Funds raised at this event will help sustain the North Creek Depot Museum and help to fund new exhibits including restoring our caboose and the Historic Milk Car.  The Depot Museum focuses on several aspects of local history including the Adirondack Railroad and its effect on the region, the story of Theodore Roosevelt’s midnight ride to the Presidency, the history of the Snow Trains and the development of skiing at Gore Mountain, and D&H Railroad history.
