Enjoy the Murals of Lake Placid
Come to the Lake Placid Chamber/Mural Gallery, 18 N. Oak St. Open Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. except holidays. View a 10-minute video, which answers most of the questions visitors have asked. The original mural renderings are on display. Purchase a $3.00 mural tour book. The history of each mural is in the book. The artist hides something in each mural, and the book tells you what to look for. Sometimes the artist leaves something out.
Then you may take a walking tour of the town.
Time for the tour varies for each person due to the pace at which you walk, and how much interest you have in finding the hidden items, and reading the history. You can finish the tour in one hour, or spend an entire day. It is up to you.
Groups are welcome. For a group of ten to fifty people, you may make arrangements for a showing of the 10-minute mural video, and a talk about the history of the mural society. This includes how the society started. It also tells about the impact of the murals on the Town of Lake Placid. You may ask questions. Donations are accepted. Reservations recommended. Call 863-465-2394
Bus tour companies are welcome. A mural guide boards your bus, and gives a one and a half hour tour of the murals. This includes the history of the murals, and a history of the Lake Placid Mural Society, along with some of the funny things that happened along the way. The fee for this is $6.00 per person, payable to the Lake Placid Mural Society. Reservations required. Call 863-465-2394
