It is known as one of the most beautiful and cleanest lakes around, and for years Skaneateles Lake and the town of Skaneateles have served as the eastern gateway to the Finger Lakes, drawing visitors from all over the world. The beauty of the lake is enhanced by the well-kept village and town, which line its shores. Many of the early homes and buildings have been well maintained and are recognizable today. From the mid-1800s to the 1970s, the town changed little from when it was first settled in 1794.With sailboats and steamships, old views of the village and of school days of yore, Skaneateles recalls the people, places, and events that made a difference. Included are people such as John D. Barrow and Clarence Austin, places such as the Glen Haven Water Cure and the Packwood House, and events such as Bobby Kennedy's visit and Microd racing. Skaneateles also recalls the City of Syracuse and the town's great history of steamships, sailing and boating, and early industries
