Steamboats made way along Sacandaga River

April 7, 2014
By PETER BETZ , The Leader Herald

Under the headline, "The Sacandaga," the June 4, 1874, Saratogian newspaper informed the public, "The steamboat L.E. Wait has resumed its trips to and from the Fish House." Area papers printed many announcements regarding the running schedule of what was probably the first Sacandaga River steamer throughout its 35- year lifespan, also giving notices of when it stopped for winter and restarted in spring, but before the Internet provided quick access to early New York newspapers via the www.fultonhistory.com website, considerably less was known about early Adirondack steamboat activities.
