History of Keene
Keene received its charter on March 19, 1808. It consists of the
hamlets of Keene, Keene Valley and St. Huberts. It was formed from
portions of Elizabethtown and Jay and until 1848 included all of
the land now lying in North Elba, which is now home to Lake Placid,
host to two winter Olympic Games. After
the Civil War, a young landscape artist by the name of Perkins settled
in the area for two years. His beautiful paintings inspired his
colleagues to travel to the Adirondacks to see what he had seen.
As this local population of artists expanded, the Keene Valley Region
became a popular retreat for writers and artists. Today, Keene is
home to many respected authors and artists who find inspiration
in the natural beauty of the High Peaks.
