    200 years of incarceration that’s not the only thing that’s overlooked There was over a 100 years of Mining iron ore In the Adirondacks
    All we hear about is 4weeks of winter sports history that happened in Lake Placid and thats the only economic wheel being greased in the Adirondacks

    I’ve read Dr Halls book – it’s fantastic :). Super interesting and previously hidden part of Adirondack history. In particular, learning about the degree to which the infrastructure of the tourist industry was built by prison labor has been eye-opening. But the book focuses primarily on the how and why of so many prisons appearing in the region.
