Spirits of Saranac Lake: Real Stories of Ghostly Encounters and Other Local Lore

On Wednesday, February 7, 2024, beginning at 7 p.m., please join us in the John Black Room at the Saranac Laboratory Museum at 89 Church Street for a spooky hour of tales of the haunted cure cottages, homes, and hotels of Saranac Lake plus results from the recent paranormal investigations in town. Stories will include historical details that provide context and, when possible, suggest who these earthbound spirits might be and why they linger here. Presented by HSL volunteer Carolyn Greenberg.

If you have a spiritual encounter from the Saranac Lake area to share, please contact Carolyn at
