History

In 1786, William Bond became the first settler of European descent in 1786. The first public lodging was offered in 1789. A 70-foot drop in the Schroon River provided the water power needed to drive the development of sawmills and tanneries in the area. One sawmill, the Dudley Farlin mill, used more than 70 water-powered saws. James Fenimore Cooper wrote his novel, The Last of the Mohicans, in a second-story apartment above a storefront on Main Street.

Parks and Recreation

Those with Warrensburg real estate live entirely within Adirondack Park, a six-million acre playground full of recreational possibilities. Whitewater rafting on the Hudson River is popular in the spring when the snowmelt energizes the river's flow. Fishermen that purchase real estate in Warrensburg can enjoy both trout and salmon fishing.

Attractions and Activities

The Charles Lathrop Demonstration Pack Forest includes Pack Forest Lake. Trails meander throughout the woods and around the lake, and they are not overly demanding. Kayaks and canoes can be seen out on the lake in the summer. The facility also offers environmental classes and camps.

Just to the west of town is a rustic, throwback ski resort named the Hickory Ski Center. The traditional-style T-lift reminds one of the way snow skiing used to be. This conveniently located ski hill is popular with local residents.
