Brief History of Bolton Landing

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Bolton Landing was a haven for the wealthy in search of a summer getaway. Hotels began to spring up along the shore, including the historic Sagamore Hotel on Green Island. Even after the building was destroyed in two separate fires, The Sagamore thrives as a luxurious resort and historical landmark on the lake.
