“Adirondack Heritage” is an anthology of stories about the history and historic sites of the Adirondacks, especially Essex County, by former Lake Placid News writer Lee Manchester. The collection is laid out in five sections. “The Historic Olympic Region” focuses on two towns united by the Winter Olympic Games of 1932 and 1980: Lake Placid and Wilmington. “Historic Essex County & Beyond” covers the Town of Jay and seven other Essex County communities, a scattering of one-room schoolhouses, and a dozen historic and cultural sites. “Adirondac” looks at the 19th century iron-mining ghost town in the Town of Newcomb alternately known as "the Deserted Village," Tahawus, the Upper Works, McIntyre, or Adirondac. “Historic Preservation, Adirondack-Style” highlights the work of Adirondack Architectural Heritage, dedicated to preserving and interpreting the historic architecture of the Adirondacks. “John Brown’s Farm & The Underground Railroad” tells the tale of North Elba’s own John Brown, the radical abolitionist who met his fate in Harper’s Ferry. It also debunks various misbegotten tales about “Timbuctoo,” North Elba’s famous Black colony, and John Brown’s supposed Underground Railroad station in North Elba.
