Wilderness to Warfront : The Adirondacks and World War II

The battles of World War II were fought far from the Adirondack Mountains, yet this global conflict had a profound impact on every community here. As thousands of young Adirondack men and women left home to serve their country, local businesses turned to producing war material and households coped with rationing and blackout drills. The Adirondack Experience collection documents these stories, illuminating the struggles and ultimate triumph of a nation at war.

World War II ended in 1945--75 years ago. We honor the legacy of the Adirondack men and women who fought the war at home and abroad and shaped the world we live in today.
