Exploring the Gateway to the Adirondacks: Made In America Bonus Clip

 

MarketScale’s award winning original “Made in America” series hits the highways and byways of our country seeking out American-made, American-proud companies that are the backbone of our great nation. In this bonus segment, Daniel Litwin of MarketScale makes a stop in Queensbury, New York, and visits with local historians Joan Aldous and Stan Cianfarano.

Considered the “Gateway to the Adirondacks”, each year, thousands of tourists and outdoor/adventure enthusiasts are drawn to Queensbury for its natural beauty and plethora of recreational opportunities—from amusement parks and golf courses to downhill & cross-country ski trails to the annual Adirondack Balloon Festival. But located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains on the shores of Lake George, Queensbury is more than just your ordinary tourist town. Boasting a rich history that stretches back almost 300 years, predating the American Revolution, Queensbury was once a part of the great northern wilderness—a favorite hunting and fishing site for the Iroquois during the summer and a route over which their war parties traveled on the way to Canada.

Members of the Warren County Historical Society, Aldous and Cianfarano are proud of Queensbury’s long and illustrious heritage.

“A lot of the historic markers we have pertain to the French and Indian War period because of the military road that came through here. Route 9—where Halfway Brook crosses—is where George Washington came to visit.”
