Jump to: navigation, search

Adirondack County is a proposed new county in New York to be formed out of town of North Elba of Essex County and other surrounding towns that have economies based on tourism. In 2007, North Elba Town Supervisor Shirley Seney stated that such an administrative restructuring could be used as a means of keeping revenue local. [1]

The idea and the suggested name date to circa 1913, when it was proposed by famed tuberculosis doctor Lawrason Brown, of the Adirondack Cottage Sanitarium. [2] Saranac Lake was to have been the county seat.
