Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ...Placid.

It lies among the hills about 1o miles north of Au Sable Forks on the little stream that empties into Lake Champlain south of Bluff Point. It is reached best over the Au Sable Branch railroad from Plattsburgh to Peru, thence by carriage six miles west. It lies between two parallel mountain spurs thai: project eastward from the great Adirondack system, enclosing the Salmon River Valley. Accommodations can be found among the farm houses in the valley (or on the mountain sides, if one is inclined to seek the greater elevations) where wholesome country fare, with an abundance of fresh farm and dairy products can be had and willing and unstinted service. Address Arnold & Ricketson, Peasleville, Clinton Co, for particulars of names and places. CHAPTER VII. Elizabethtown, Keene Valley And The Au Sable Lakes. Westport is the usual entrance from the east to Elizabethtown and Keene Valley. Daily stages run from morning trains week-days via Keene and Cascade Lakes to Lake Placid, but the road is not ideal all the way...show more
