Classic Wigwam reopens in Lake George

Email News Alerts

One of Lake George's most recognizable cornerstone businesses will re-open June 4 after a two-year hiatus that seemed endless to visitors.


The Wigwam, purveyor of Native American crafts and quirky tchotchkes (small toys), comes to life in its original form on the corners on Highway 71 and Hubbard County 4 after being purchased last year by Jean Kruft.

Kruft grew up in Dorset and taught many years in North Carolina before returning home last fall.
