• Theodore Roosevelt

    Theodore Roosevelt was climbing Mt. Marcy in the Adirondacks’ High Peaks when word arrived that President McKinley had been shot. Traveling by horse and buggy, Roosevelt rushed over 40 miles of dirt roads to the North Creek railroad station to learn that McKinley died and that he (Roosevelt) was now President. A plaque commemorating the event is at the station. The buggy itself is located at the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake.
