Shelving Rock Falls

Shelving Rock Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Explore a corner of Lake George Wild Forest while visiting a long, powerful cascade.

Welcome to the former Lake George vacation home of George Knapp, founder and president of Union Carbide, who in 1902 built a mansion here in the shadow on Shelving Rock. Knapp and his family owned a great deal of land near Lake George, apparently keeping it wild with the same passion for open land shared by other captains of industry in his time—notably the Rockefeller, Astor, and Vanderbilt families, who protected thousands of acres along the Hudson River and in eastern Maine."
