  • “It’s been over one hundred years since a search party found Grace Brown’s body in the bottom of Big Moose Lake in the western Adirondacks. The murder trial in Herkimer of her boyfriend, Chester Gillette, made the front page in newspapers around the country and inspired Theodore Dreiser’s weighty novel, An American Tragedy. In 1986 Craig Brandon wrote a history of this famous pair and now his new edition of Murder in the Adirondacks contains more photos and facts. Betsy Kepes has this book review.”

Boat Club Dock on Cranberry Lake

To be or not to be?

Dear Cranberry Lake Boat Club Community:

It has been a very interesting and thought provoking year. We have done a fair amount of research and strategizing about how to provide a Boat Club dock on our beloved lake. It has been said that it takes a community to raise a child. It will take THIS community to have a Boat Club dock again.

We will be sharing more details soon.

If we are to again have a Boat Club dock, your generous support is essential ….
