The History of Lake George.

There has always been a debate on who first discovered the Lake, some say Samuel de Champlain in the early 1600s, and others, Father Isaac Jogues in the 1640s. Either way, it was Father Jogues that named the lake "Lac Du Saint Sacrement" in May of 1646. 110 years later the French and Indians began their 7 year war as the French tried to invade the British Colonial territory. The region was crucial for the British to secure since the French dominated Canada and areas to the north.

In September 1755, a series of three engagements between British and French forces broke out at the southern end of Lake George. These would collectively come to be known as the Battle of Lake George, which is commonly considered to be one of the first major victories for the British against the French.
History is everywhere around the Lake with many local historical sites giving Lake George a rich and unique history.
