Thanks for Hugely Successful Book Launch and Open House at Silver Spruce Inn!

We had a marvelous turnout to celebrate the launch of the new book by Maureen Werther, “Them That Has…The Story of a 1790’s Adirondack House and the People Who Made it Famous. Guests showed up by the dozens to purchase a signed copy of the book and to have a tour of Silver Spruce Inn.

We thought we’d share some photos of the event with you here. And, please contact us 518-532-7031 or send us an email request on our
