Help support Historic Saranac Lake’s collections


A generous local collector, Richard Monroe, donated 25 of these Collins Brothers bottles to be sold to further the preservation and use of Historic Saranac Lake’s collections.

Each bottle will be sold for $100, with options for a clear or blue bottle (shipping available). Please note: these bottles are old, and were discovered after spending many years in local lakes and rivers, and therefore may contain small imperfections.

The sale will be open to the public on Tuesday, October 19 at 12:00PM (EST). The sale will be first-come, first serve, so mark your calendars! A link will be added to this page at that time.

Please note: these bottles are identical to ones contained in our permanent collection. If you would like to see these bottles in the future, please get in touch! Questions? Send us an email!

    I think the wonderfully written story that Richard wrote about his personal bottle excavations should also be printed out and given along with each bottle sold. It gives the bottles added value in a historically, heartwarming kinda way. Just a thought! 🙂

  2. Is there any way to find out which buildings are included in the “Lost Buildings”
    exhibit? My grandmothers relatives owned several hotels there in the early part
    of the twentieth century. There names were Morgan and Toof.
