The haunted places featured in Adirondack Ghosts Road Trip surround Lake George, border Lake Champlain, and encompass Lake Placid. The proximity to water is perfect for attracting the ghostly manifestations seen at Fort William Henry, Fort Ticonderoga, and Crown Point Historic Site. The French and Indian and Revolutionary Wars left their mark on these fortifications in mysterious ways.
The area’s long history of hospitality gives rise to a host of spirits at the Sagamore Resort, Whiteface Club, and the Stagecoach Inn.
These are the stories of innkeepers, educators, farmers, founders, and plain old folks who lived their lives in the region; their spirits remain tethered here and haunt the storied terrain. Surrounded by such awesome beauty, why would anyone, dead or alive, want to leave the Adirondacks?
Welcome to landmark lodges, mysterious museums, and phantom filled forts—some of the supernaturally shaded places presented along the 100-mile journey from Lake George to Lake Placid. Buckle up and embark on an Adirondack Ghosts Road Trip.
About The Author
Lynda Lee Macken grew up on Staten Island where her interest in the supernatural was fostered by a nearby haunted house. In 2000, the author founded Black Cat Press and published her first book, Haunted History of Staten Island, which remains the best-selling book about Richmond County, NY on Amazon.com.
Following her sighting of Grace Brown's ghost floating over Big Moose Lake in New York State's Adirondack Mountains, Macken appeared on Unsolved Mysteries to detail her experience. The ghostly encounter inspired her to pen Adirondack Ghosts. In the process to understand paranormal phenomena the author went on to research, write and publish 25 additional regional ghost books highlighting the most haunted places in New York; New Jersey; New Hope, Pennsylvania; Baltimore, Maryland and Salem, Massachusetts.
In addition to her many radio and television appearances, Macken has consulted for Paranormal Borderline, Scariest Places on Earth, Psychic Kids, Ghost Hunters, PBS and the Travel Channel, among others.
The death of loved ones promoted further interest in the mystery of death and the survival of consciousness. Consequently, Macken published her first memoir, Array of Hope, An Afterlife Journal in 2008 which chronicles after death communications with her mother.
The author holds a Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Sociology from Rutgers University and lives at the Jersey Shore.
