America's Most Interesting Town
Drum roll please!!!!! LAKE PLACID IS THE GRAND PRIZE WINNER!!!!!
In 2013, Reader’s Digest voted Lake Placid ‘AMERICA’S MOST INTERESTING TOWN’. We are very proud to have this title, and it inspired this beautiful mural ‘Celebrate Lake Placid’.
This mural is a collage of several parts of the murals of Lake Placid. It embodies much of what Lake Placid is all about and what makes it so interesting. The lakes, the citrus, the caladiums, our endangered species, the cowmen, the Indians, and Dr. Melvil Dewey who invented the Dewey Decimal System, and in 1927, named the town Lake Placid after his beloved Lake Placid in New York.
