A night of historical entertainment including two performances based on the original settlers of Long Lake, NY in the 1800s with musical entertainment by local musicians. A Walk on the Wild Side explores the dangers surrounding our first pioneers. Mystery of the Buttercup (abridged) is based on the riveting true story of the steamship that sits outside the town office buildings in Long Lake. Both are reenactments by local actors of real people portrayed with all the excitement, and fervor found in Huntley’s books.
