ELIZABETHTOWN – The Adirondack History Museum held its first Adirondack Fire Tower Program of the summer Wednesday, July 22, which included a guided hike to the Poke-O-Moonshine fire tower, and educators will be holding the same program in August.

“Fire towers are one of the emblematic sights in the Adirondacks, and this program offers insight into the history of these structures and the important role they played in fire protection and local history,” museum Director Aurora McCaffrey said in a press release.

The free program for families is appropriate for students in grades 4 through 8, and children must be accompanied by an adult. It will also be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 12.
