The Village of Speculator was incorporated in 1925 and is located in Hamilton County and the Town of Lake Pleasant. We were incorporated under a special act of the legislature as we are 47 square miles. The Village is the economic center within the Town of Lake Pleasant hosting many dining, lodging and shopping opportunities. There are also recreational facilities and trails including our own pavilion, gazebo and park areas on and across from Lake Pleasant. There are also mountain bike trails, snowmobile trails, downhill and cross-country skiing, ice skating in the pavilion, swimming at the Village beach, basketball at the Village court and much, much more. Speculator welcomed tourists post-World War I when it became the preferred training site for heavy-weight boxing champions such as Gene Tunney, Max Baer and Max Schmelling. We welcome visitors to our area and hope you enjoy the Southern Adirondack Mountain experience!
