History Hut and Giftshop

SARANAC LAKE- The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee is extremely proud to introduce the History Hut & Gift shop. Located during carnival at the Lake Flower boat launch, the History Hut will display photos and memorabilia of Carnivals past and present. The gift shop will sell Carnival related items such as buttons, flags, posters among other desirable keep sakes.
The History Hut & Gift shop is the long-time dream of Winter Carnival Chairman Jeff Branch. "It is critical to keep the history of Winter Carnival preserved for future generations." Said Branch. "The project would not be possible without our generous donors Barry and Dee Dee Wigmore and the help from Clyde Rabideau. Jeff would like to thank Dean Baker, Marty Rawley, Rob Russell, Barbara Martin, Liz Murray, Mark Kurtz, Dave Rockefeller, and Beryl Szwed for all they did to make this project a reality."
We welcome everyone to visit the History Hut and Gift shop that will be open Fridays Saturdays and Sundays from 10-6 pm now through Carnival. Hours are subject to change based on availability of volunteers.
The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, formally known as the Society for Promotion of Winter Carnival, Saranac Lake, Inc., is a not-for-profit 501(c)(4) organization of volunteers dedicated to planning and presenting an annual mid-winter festival. This 10-day, communitywide event traces its roots to a one-day Winter Carnival held in 1897 by the Pontiac Club. The Carnival honors its heritage every year by building an Ice Palace from blocks of ice harvested from Lake Flower's Pontiac Bay, where carnival events have been traditionally held for generations.
