In June, 1907, the Haase Block was constructed at 60 Main Street by Scopes and Feustmann. Owned by 35 year old wealthy Episcopal clergyman William Haase, the earliest tenants of the Haase Block were the Saranac Lake National Bank, the Denny jewelry store, and architects Scopes and Feustmann . Marie Haase, William Haase’s wife, created the Tent Theatre behind the Hasse block. This is where actress Rosalind Russell got her start in 1929 at age 22. The building held the architect firm of Scopes and Feustmann (which evolved into Wareham and DeLair) until the 1980s, when the Adirondack Bank became the sole occupant of Haase Block.
