     History
    Wow! Gaslight village!. I didnt' realize how easy this was to find!
    Art Monaco was instrumental in creating this place as well as Frontier town, Land of Make believe, e.t.c..
    I will be modifying the history of this location as I get info.
    Generic: opened in the '50's, closed late 80's. This park was supposed to represent middle America.
    And to think our quest for the Land of Make believe was a wild goose chase, and here the Gaslight village was right under my nose all along.
    Most of Art Monaco's park are aroundin one form or another. Ghost town, Story Town, is now rolled into Great esape. But gaslight village has eluded me for a long time. If I had driven down to the "million dollar mile" I would have seen it immediately, but I avoid the tourist traps.
    Keep in mind this location is subject to change.
    As I found gaslight villagem it was previously "Lake george action park" a go cart track. That failed too.

     Future Plans
    Is now owned by the village of Lake George. I believe they plan on preserving it, but I'm not positive, will update soon.
