History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The area received its first permanent settlers around 1770. The town of Lake Luzerne was set off from the town of Queensbury in 1792 as the "Town of Fairfield." In 1808, the town changed its name to "Luzerne," and in 1963 to "Lake Luzerne". Now the town is known for its Adirondack Folk School, with classes designed to keep the arts, crafts and culture of the Adirondacks alive [1], and for the Lake Luzerne Chamber Music Festival where artists such as classical guitarist Joel Brown, the Imani Winds, violinist Raymond Gniewek, and jazz greats Chris and Dave Brubeck perform during the summer months.
