Constructed in 1906, the Adirondack National Bank was once a beautiful stone building built on the site of guide Reuben Reynolds’ house. Sadly, this building is a reminder of what can happen when history isn’t protected. This building is a reminder of the importance of historic preservation, and inspired history-minded locals to start what would become Historic Saranac Lake. The 1963 “modernization” of the building left one of the most beautiful facades on Main Street as a brick wall, and destroyed the interior. Previously occupied by Key Bank, the building is now vacant (2020).
