Pioneer Health Resort Tour

Throughout our day, we will view many of the buildings and sites that made Saranac Lake America’s “Pioneer Health Resort.”

The village’s late 19th- and early 20th-century history is closely tied to the treatment for tuberculosis developed by Dr. Edward L. Trudeau, involving exposure to the fresh, crisp air of the Adirondacks.

Trudeau’s laboratory, extensively rehabilitated by HSL to operate as a museum and history center, was regarded as a state-of-the-art facility when it was constructed in 1894.

The tour will include the Saranac Laboratory, the Trudeau Institute—the first cure cottage, the former Trudeau Sanatorium, the Cure Cottage Museum, and the Béla Bartók Cottage where the well-known Hungarian composer lived during his final years.

Co-sponsored by Historic Saranac Lake (HSL), this tour will be led by Executive Director Amy Catania.

The tour begins at 10 a.m. and ends around 3 p.m. Please note that this tour includes sections of uphill walking.
