Melvil Dewey Designed the Placid Park Club

Placid Park Club

Melvil Dewey, who invented the Dewey Decimal System, designed what was then called “Placid Park Club” in 1895 and inspired the village to change its name to Lake Placid, which became an incorporated village in 1900. Beautiful in all seasons, Mirror Lake, NY is the home of beautiful scenery, fantastic eateries, and a diverse culture.
