History

North Creek was the original northern terminus of the Adirondack Railway, the first railroad into the Adirondacks, built by Dr. Thomas C. Durant. It was to the station at North Creek that then Vice President Theodore Roosevelt rode from Mount Marcy upon learning of the death of William McKinley in 1901.

The North Creek Railroad Station Complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.[2]

Business and Tourism

The Gore Mountain ski area has been expanded greatly over the past five years, with new trails, gondola, and quad chairlift, which has increased trails by 40%. The center is owned by New York State and operated by ORDA (Olympic Regional Development Authority). As a result, the hamlet of North Creek has seen an influx of private investment in new businesses, including a bakery/coffeehouse "Cafe Sarah", a wine and tapas restaurant known as "barVino", the Alpine Lodge, the locally known, high-end chocolate company "Barkeater Chocolates", and the Tannery Pond Community Center, which is home to many non-profit organizations, an art gallery, Art & Nature Camp, and a theater company. There are several new housing developments under way as well.
