Million Dollar Beach Site — Archaeological Excavations in the Village of Lake George, NY

The Million Dollar Beach Site is a multi-component archaeological site directly adjacent to the famous waterfront in the Village of Lake George. Limited excavations of the site toward the goal of better preserving it in place while maintaining use of the beach parking lot, road, and campground, are currently underway in a collaborative effort between the New York State Museum’s Cultural Resource Survey Program and the Department of Environmental Conservation.
