Asleep Beneath The Sod: Saranac Lake’s Historic Pine Ridge Cemetery

Saranac Lake’s Pine Ridge Cemetery sprawls over a sandy hillside in the heart of the village. In it lie the last remains of the village’s first settlers, along with hundreds of others, some well known, some not, who followed them across the great divide. Join Mountain Lake PBS and Curiously Adirondack in a ramble through the cemetery with the best of all possible guides: Natalie Leduc, one of the village’s grand dames, a former Winter Carnival queen who looks after the cemetery and, when her rich and adventurous life is done, aims to be buried there someday.
