Historic Saranac Lake | Jack LaDuke’s Adirondack Journal

The Village of Saranac Lake, New York, has a long and storied history of treating patients recovering from one of the last widespread pandemics, Tuberculosis, which killed millions of people across the U.S. from the late 1800s through the mid-1950s. And unlike today’s Coronavirus, the tuberculosis-infected patients were not kept apart from the public, even though it was highly contagious. Our Jack LaDuke shares Saranac Lake’s Place in History.
