Overview


On the eastern edge of the famed New York State Finger Lakes is situated Skaneateles Lake, a name believed to have been derived from the Native American Onondaga tribe, meaning "long lake." The lake is, in fact, just over fifteen miles long, with an astonishing depth of three hundred fifty feet, and for over a century it was thought to have been one of the purist bodies of water in the world. With nearly two hundred images, Skaneateles Lake shows early farmland, parks, sailboat races, and well-known Victorian places of water recreation and touring, for those seeking the health spas and bizarre, ornate hydrotherapies popular at the time. The lake and village have been enjoyed by many historical figures through time, from wealthy New York City summer visitors to presidential families from the Roosevelts to the Clintons.
