Categories: Event, History, Legend, NYS History

Join A New York Minute In History for the first episode of a special series on folklore. In this initial journey of the “Legends and Lore of The Empire State” series, co-hosts Devin Lander and Lauren Roberts explore the legend behind a storied lake monster in northern New York. If you happen to find yourself driving along on Cumberland Head Road in the Town of Plattsburgh, looking out across the brooding blue waves of Lake Champlain you may come across a red marker with the title, “Champy.”
