LAKE PLACID – The Adirondack History Museum (AHM) invites the public for an authentic taste of the Adirondacks.

 

On Sunday, April 3, AHM will host its first Sunday Jaunt field trip to the Uihlein Sugar Shack.  The shack, which is operated by the Uihlein Foundation, will offer a tour of its sugaring operations. Visitors will learn about the maple sugaring process, and have a chance to taste real Adirondack maple syrup. Sugar Bush Operator Jamie Rogers will be on hand to answer questions.

The sugar shack will be open from 1 to 3 p.m. Along with learning about maple sugaring, the trails will be open for hiking. The event is free to the public.

The AHM Sunday Jaunt series is designed to encourage people to explore Essex County’s history. The Uihlein Foundation operates a community preserve known as Henry’s Woods. The Sugar Shack is located at 302 Bear Cub Road. 

The Adirondack History Museum in Elizabethtown seeks to serve as Essex County’s center for the stories that reveal the roots and values of its people. For more information on the program, call 518-873-6466 or email echs@adkhistorymuseum.org.
