Works from the collection – the Rembrandt, the Rubens, the Picasso, the Renoirs, and the Hassam, for instance – are constantly in demand by museums around the world as they plan their exhibitions. A large part of this collection is installed in the elegant atmosphere of historic Hyde House, an American Renaissance mansion built in 1912.
US Olympic Training Center
It is often said that Lake Placid is where "miracles are made." It was at the Lake Placid Olympic Center, in 1980, that the US men's hockey team toppled the Soviet Union on its way to winning the gold medal. This is where 16-year-old figure skater Sonja Henie won an Olympic gold medal in 1932 and charmed the world. Out front is the speed skating oval, where in 1932 local Olympian Jack Shea and teammate Irving Jaffee each won two gold medals, Eric Heiden won five in 1980, and where you can skate all winter long. But the glory isn't all behind us. Every year the 7,700-seat 1980 Rink Herb Brooks Arena (named after the Miracle on Ice coach) hosts national and international figure skating competitions, USA Hockey events, Smuckers' Stars on Ice and other special events. During the summer months we host Saturday Night Ice Shows.
