Old buildings and landmarks are storytellers to the aesthetic and cultural history of a city, helping to give people a sense of place and connection to the past. Historic buildings and places often represent something famous or important to people who live in a city or those visiting.
Here are just a few reasons why Historic sites are a great venue for meetings and events:
Opened in June 1855, the Fort William Henry Hotel was located at the head of Lake George at its southernmost point in the Village of Caldwell (now Lake George Village). On a bluff, the 3-story hotel’s main building had a lake-facing frontage stretched out 235 feet with an east wing stretching an additional 115 feet.
Today, the Fort William Henry Hotel offers upscale lodging accommodations with the perfect mix of historical elegance and today’s conveniences. From the traditional grace of the Grand Hotel to the comfort of the Premium East and Standard West rooms, all accommodations enjoy access to our extensive amenities, including an indoor pool with sauna and Whirlpool Spa, Olympic-size outdoor pool, and three restaurants all on resort grounds.
Located next to the hotel is a historic landmark that allows for guests to step back in time and experience what it was like to be at the outpost in the wilderness in 1757; the hardships and fears of being the front line in defense of the British Colonies from French invaders. Talk with those that were there!
