About Us

THE SCHROON LAKE WEEKLY GUIDE was created in 1942 by Milton Rayburn, who summered on Schroon Lake from his home in Brooklyn , New York with other members of the Fried/Kaufman family. He planned it, designed it, secured advertisers, figured the finances, etc. The first guides were printed locally; today the guide is printed by a Glens Falls printer who can print large sized posters.

Over the decades, the original guide evolved from a weekly poster into being published as we see it now, printed and posted three times each summer. Today, the distribution area is larger and there are more advertisers. Schroon Lake continues to flourish as a summer vacation place for many visitors and seasonal residents in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains and they depend on the guide for “Instant Information.”
