Trail Map: John Brown Farm State Historic Site Lake Placid

Looking for a pleasant place to relax for a few hours? Try John Brown Farm and Historic Site in Lake Placid.


As the final resting spot for abolitionist John Brown, the John Brown Farm and Gravesite encompasses the original 244 acres purchased by the Browns in 1849.  After Brown and his followers were executed for treason for the raid at Harper’s Ferry, WV John Brown’s name soon became synonymous with the anti-slavery movement. 



There are four marked trails with distances from .03 miles to 1.8 miles in length. Dogs are welcome but should be on a lead while on the trails.
