David Smith (1906-1965; b. Decatur, IN) is historically recognized as one of the great sculptors of the twentieth century. Smith began summering in the hamlet of Bolton Landing, near Lake George, beginning in the late 1920s, and he settled there permanently in 1940.
In the 1940s, inspired by live performances in the region and in New York City, Smith began a dynamic artistic campaign that depicts dancing figures and musicians absorbed by song. After this time, Smith’s work would become larger and more abstract. The impact of music and dance, and Smith’s surroundings in his adopted home of Bolton Landing, were integral to reaching this critical point of artistic maturity.

Charles Evans Hughes, a Glens Falls native, was Governor of New York from 1907 to October 1910, when he resigned to accept appointment as a U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice. He resigned from the court in June 1916 to accept the Republican nomination for President, narrowly losing to incumbent Democrat Woodrow Wilson. He later served as U.S. Secretary of State and Chief Justice of the United States.
Many places in the Adirondacks lay claim to the distinction that Charles Evans Hughes slept there. A century ago, it was at the home of Louis and Charlotte Hyde, now The Hyde Collection art museum, where Charles and Antoinette Hughes stayed overnight on June 24th, 1922, the night before dedication of the Helen Hughes Memorial Chapel, built in memory of their daughter, at Silver Bay Association in Hague on Lake George.
