ELIZABETHTOWN — Lectures, music and presentations will mark three signature events on August 6 at the Adirondack History Museum, 7590 Court St.

This year marks the centennial of three historic events that sparked public interest in exploring the Adirondack wilderness and climbing the “46” high peaks: the formation of the Adirondack Mountain Club, the publication of Robert Marshall’s High Peaks of the Adirondacks and Grace Hudowalski’s first 46er ascent Mont Marcy.

There will be a screening of the film The Mountains Will Wait for You, and a retrospective on the history and future of the AMK and a new exhibit showcasing this in the history of the Adirondacks and its effect on recreation and the Stewardship in the High Peaks will be on display.

The event is free but reservations are required at For more information, visit
