Skaneateles Lake

DID YOU KNOW?

In the early 1800s, many settlers were attracted to
the land surrounding Skaneateles Lake because they
were able to use the lake outlet as a power source
for water mills and other types of early industry.


Boats were once used to deliver mail to homes that
couldn’t be accessed by road. Today, tourists can still
deliver mail via boat with the U.S. Mailboat Cruise.
