TR Weekend 2018: 

TR Weekend 2017 was a resounding success. We celebrated Women’s suffrage, Memorialized Newcomb’s veterans and regional history for the 100th Anniversary of America’s entry into The Great War; and Tahawus: Mining in the Mountains, the Tahawus Story. TR Weekend is Newcomb’s premier event, celebrating Theodore Roosevelt’s journey out from the High Peaks wilderness near Newcomb to the White House following President McKinley’s assassination in Buffalo NY. Events are planned over the entire weekend throughout Newcomb and designed for families, cultural and informative entertainment. Next year’s venue is under consideration. As events are finalized, and the committee offers some teasers, we will update the website to keep you informed. Joe Wiegand will return to honor our events with his presidential appearance as “TR”. Indoor and Outdoor activities will take place all weekend. So come on up 28N, the historic “Roosevelt Marcy Trail” to Newcomb, NY, the Heart of NY State’s Adirondack Park to enjoy it’s history, culture, and wilderness.
