    100 Years of History

    In 1905, before the Internet, space travel, and nuclear energy, the ambitious construction for a "modern boarding school for boys" was completed in Lake Placid, NY.  Since those early years, Northwood School has grown to be recognized as an educational and architectural testament to America’s golden age of ingenuity and innovation. Built in the classic Adirondack style, Northwood was established in what is today one of America’s most cherished small-town Olympic Villages. Founders of the school included descendants of national thought leaders, scholars, and titans of American industry.
