Historic Saranac Lake and Saranac Laboratory [NY]

Historic Saranac Lake maintains ownership of Dr. Edward Livingston Trudeau's 1894 Saranac Laboratory, which was founded for the study of tuberculosis. The building survives as a tangible reminder of the possibility and optimism Trudeau sustained despite the struggle and loss of so many to this debilitating disease.

The organization offers educational programs and occasional recreational and educational events; the Laboratory is not yet open to the public, although restoration is in progress.
