Round Lake, NY. Round Lake was established in 1867 as a camp for Methodist laymen and ministers. Inticed by the dense Pine woods, natural spring waters, and convenient train service, the campgrounds grew into a permanent town. Like other Methodist camps, small cottages were eventually erected, mostly in an ornate Carpenter Gothic manner. The village today boasts many intact examples of Victorian architecture, ranging from small cottages, to large ornate examples complete with turrets, sleeping porches, and stained glass.
