Historic Saranac Lake has been awarded a $500,000 Environmental Protection Fund grant from the NY State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation to support the purchase and rehabilitation of the Trudeau Building.
Historic Saranac Lake plans to restore the former home and medical office of Dr. E. L. Trudeau and open the building as a museum that explores the story of Saranac Lake and Trudeau’s pioneering work in tuberculosis treatment. You can read more about the project, which is expected to create a museum campus next to the Hotel Saranac, here.
With the addition of this grant, funds and pledges raised to date total over $825,000, with a total goal of $1,780,000.
