Lake George Monster
The Lake George Monster was a hoax invented by painter Harry Watrous in 1904. The monster was purportedly sighted at Hague Bay in Lake George in New York, United States. This was a reported solution to an ongoing rivalry that Watrous had with another resident. After word had spread about, Mr. Watrous began to move the monster around the lake for more publicity.
The monster was also sighted at The View restaurant, near Hague. The monster is now on display in the Lake George Chamber of Commerce.
The Lake George monster is on display at the Hague Museum in the Hague Town Hall in Hague.
