Shakespeare, square dance, and more...

Schroon Lake has a storied history with the arts, which has shaped the region’s rich cultural offerings of the present. If you are interested in world class theater -- musical or Shakespearean -- the Adirondack Hub has that. If you want to get down with some fiddlers and square dance, Schroon Lake has that too, and it's been ongoing since the 1930s.

Hollywood in Schroon 

Schroon Lake was the former home to the world class Scaroon Manor resort, which you can still visit today as it's open to the public as one of our New York state campgrounds. The Scaroon Manor was the site for the 1957 Warner Brothers movie "Marjorie Morningstar" that starred Gene Kelly, Natalie Wood, Carolyn Jones, and Ed Wynn. Camp Red Wing located on the east side of Schroon Lake was also featured in the film. The "Scaroons" are mentioned twice in the film "The Last of the Mohicans" by James Fenimore Cooper. The amphitheater of Scaroon Manor today resembles an Adirondack Stonehenge and is truly a nostalgic site.
