Your Lake, Your Newspaper


Anthony F. Hall

Tony Hall grew up in Warrensburg, where his mother taught elementary school and his father published weekly newspapers, including the Lake George Mirror. After graduating from college, he returned to the Adirondacks and went to work for the region’s legendary state Senator, Ron Stafford. Tony and Lisa Hall live in Bolton Landing.

Lisa H. Hall


Lisa Hammerquist Hall’s Huguenot ancestors migrated from Quebec to Saranac Lake before the Civil War. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, she operated a successful small couture business in New York City, Albany and the Adirondacks for 25 years. Her work appeared in many publications, including Martha Stewart Living, Town & Country and the New York Times Magazine, among others. Her background in design, business experience and a life-long love of community newspapers allowed her to step into the role of Lake George Mirror Publisher with enthusiasm. These days, her work as a couturier is confined to conserving the costumes of opera singer Marcella Sembrich at the museum in Bolton Landing dedicated to that diva’s memory. She also serves as the museum’s vice-president and as a director of the town’s historical society.
