Your home may not be on Main Street, but if you want to protect it, your insurance agent should be. As your local Professional Insurance Agents, we really are “Local Agents Serving Main Street America.”SM

The well-being of our customers—our neighbors—is important to us. We know that many people don’t fully understand what their homeowners insurance policy actually covers. Unfortunately, it’s often less than they think. When disaster strikes, seemingly minor exclusions can be monumental roadblocks between a policyholder and a claims payment. Together, we can help you understand what your homeowners insurance policy actually covers—or doesn’t. We work hard to get to know you so we can better answer your questions and provide coverage options for your home. Because we represent a number of quality insurance companies, we can help you choose from a number of policies to better fit your unique needs. Whether you need insurance for your home or simply want to review your coverage options, give us a call or stop by our office so we can get to know you. Your biggest asset deserves the attention of your local “Main Street” insurance agents.

The

Whiteface Veterans’ Memorial Highway is a Can’t Miss By Jon Lundin, ORDA Director of Communications Photography by ORDA/Whiteface Lake Placid

As summer arrives so do the visitors, who want to experience what we’re fortunate enough to every single day. Some will come to the region to compete, whether it’s the Lake Placid Marathon, Lake Placid Ironman or the other various events and competitions that dot the summer schedule. Others come just to relax, escape the grind of daily life and take in the breathtaking surroundings. A summer attraction is the Whiteface Mountain Veterans’ Memorial Highway, located in Wilmington, NY, just eight-miles east of Lake Placid. For the some 70-thousand people who make the eight-mile long drive from the base to the summit… this is a “can’t miss.” At 4,867 feet in elevation, Whiteface Mountain is New York State’s fifth highest peak and the only one of the 46 high peaks, within the Adirondack Park, that’s accessible by car. In fact, the highway pre-dates the ski resort. The Whiteface Mountain ski center was built in 1958, but this engineering marvel opened to the public in 1936. In 1929 Franklin D. Roosevelt kicked off the project when he governed the Empire State. Seven years later, as President of the United States, he officially opened the Highway and dedicated it to the Veterans of World War I. In 1985, Governor Mario Cuomo rededicated the

24

SUMMER 2016 l Lake Placid Real Estate The Magazine

Highway to Veterans of all wars. Today, plaques can be found mounted on the north side of the Whiteface Castle. Last summer, $12 million in state funding, through Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, enabled vital repairs as the Highway endured multiple landslides, heavy rains and earthquakes, in addition to the region’s harsh weather, high winds and freezing conditions. The roadway was re-surfaced, re-graded and the outdated drainage system was replaced. The Highway ends about 300 feet shy of the summit. During Roosevelt’s dedication ceremony, the wheelchair bound President said, “I wish very much that it were possible for me to walk up the few remaining feet to the actual top of the mountain. Someday they are going to make it possible for people who cannot make the little climb to go up there in a comfortable and easy elevator.”

That “Someday” came quickly, just three years later a 426-foot long tunnel was dug, leading visitors to an elevator which would carry them 276 feet up to the summit. Visitors can also reach the summit by making their way through a hiking trail or by using a stone staircase to the top.


An alpine-style gatehouse, constructed in 1934, and Lake Stevens, a small, pristine pond, give the Highway a picturesque start. As you ascend the mountain, there are opportunities to pull off the road and take in the scenery that includes several of the region’s high peaks, lakes, ponds and streams. At several of the stops, there are also picnic tables for you to enjoy a snack or lunch. And if you keep your eyes wide open, perhaps you’ll be able to spot a Bicknell’s Thrush, or two. The endangered bird spends its winters in the Caribbean, but during the summer months it migrates to the higher elevation forests of the northeast, including Whiteface Mountain. It’s believed that there are only 50,000 of these six to seven and a half inch, olive, brown and grey birds still left in existence, and only a handful make it to the mountain each year, so you’ll have to watch closely. As you begin to approach the summit, the Castle, which sits high atop the mountain, will begin to come into view. The Castle was built with the granite excavated during the Highway’s construction. In addition to the Castle, the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center will also come into view. Built in 1961, the Center measures chemical species both in the gas phase and dissolved in cloud, fog and rain water. At the summit, a spectacular 360-degree view awaits you. On clear day, and there are many during the summer months, visitors can see as far north into Montreal, Canada. Also at the summit, guests can enjoy gourmet rustic cuisine, served in the Castle Café, or shop for a souvenir in the Brookside Apparel Store. The cost is $15 for vehicle and driver and just $8 for additional passengers. Guests can also cycle up the highway for only $8. Group rates are also available.

The master suite and adjacent 3 season cedar sunporch also face the lake and open out to the large 60’ cedar deck. There are three large bedrooms on the second floor, along with a full bath and cozy reading nook. Built in pine cabinets and cedar closets provide lots of storage and space. It is a very comfortable home with hardwood floors and elegant Adirondack accents throughout. Radiant in floor heat, ceiling fans, and combination heat and air conditioning units provide warmth and comfort. Full basement and large three car attached garage. The 2.25 acre lot provides privacy and the gently sloping yard leads to 355 ‘of remarkably level waterfront.

Located in Westport, a small but active community with renowned community theatre, library, and social activities. Just 40 minutes to Lake Placid or Plattsburgh, and minutes to the Adirondack Northway, Westport and Lake Champlain are a lesser known gem in the Adirondack Park.
