Guest host Paul Larson presents a series of stories that celebrate famous people and places of the Adirondacks on Mountain Lake Journal this week.
We’ll commemorate the 100th anniversary of New York State granting women the right to vote with a look at the life of Inez Milholland. The Essex county native played a pivotal role in leading suffragists to victory.
Then we’ll examine the landscapes of 20th century artist and activist Rockwell Kent, and the local location that inspired his paintings for decades. Asgaard Farm now operates as both a goat dairy farm, and a place of pilgrimage for Rockwell Kent enthusiasts.
We’ll also take a journey up a mountain at the iconic Whiteface Ski Center. The resort attracts people in the summer months with a gondola ride that offers unparalleled views of the North Country.
This special episode of Mountain Lake Journal premieres Friday at 8pm, with repeats on Saturday at 5am and 7pm, and Sunday at 5am and 10am.
