Stories help connect us to place. We all have our favorites – folklore passed down for generations; silly tall tales that tickle our funny bones; and local legends that are somehow believable. The Adirondacks is a very special place to everyone who lives here and to those who visit. New stories and memories are always being created. Join us for Folklore Fridays to hear stories of regional legend and lore and learn how to create your own tall tale.
