Stories from the Attic
In 2017, I will be entering my 15th season with the Adirondack Attic History Project, which started in 2003 with the "Adirondack Attic" newspaper columns, then the book series in 2004 and the radio show on North Country Public Radio in 2010. Plus, I've spent all that time traveling around New York state telling stories about Adirondack history based on the artifacts I've found.
