“Unique town and auditorium”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

I love the village of round lake. Reminds me of Lilydale on Chattaqua Lake in western NY. The auditorium is old but they have some interesting shows all summer. The organ is very unique. Nice village to wlk around, ride a bike through (right on an awesome biking/hiking trail).

“Summer Cultural Events at the Round Lake Auditorium”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

Begun in 1868 as a “camp meeting” town, the Village of Round Lake, New York soon evolved into a Chautauqua-type resort, with hotels, museums, and lecture halls. The Auditorium built at the center of the wagon-wheel street plan also evolved, and by 1912 had been developed into a large wooden structure with glass windows and a series of wide steps above the stage at the front, rising up to the large pipe organ. Built in 1847 by Richard Ferris, the 3-manual-and-pedal, 48-stop, mechanical-action organ is the oldest and largest of its type in North America. Throughout the summer months, the 450-seat Auditorium hosts an extensive series of concerts, plays, art shows, and performances. The Auditorium and the organ have been lovingly maintained and restored, complete with such modern amenities as rest rooms. A stroll around the village streets also provides a unique and interesting view of Victoriana. The Village of Round Lake is located just south of Saratoga Springs, easily accessible from both New York State Route 9 and I-87 (Adirondack Northway). A full schedule of events for the 2013 summer season may be found at: http://www.roundlakeauditorium.org/schedule2013.html
