History

The village began in 1867 as a summer camp meeting locale for groups of Methodists. At first, visitors lived in tents, while visiting ministers could rent space in the second story of the meeting's passenger station. By 1868 more permanent structures including cottages, a two-story trustees office and bookstore, and a market appeared. Besides the expected religious meetings, a week was devoted to musical endeavors [never heard of this, not sure accuracy for "music week]. It was owned and governed by the Round Lake Association and patterned after Chautauqua Institution. (no. Incorrect. The original grounds were a camp meeting that frequently featured the Troy Annual Conference Camp Meeting, the National Camp-Meeting Association for the Promotion of Holiness, and the New York State Camp Meeting. The grounds' days as the Round Lake Assembly, which was modeled after the Chautauqua Institute, did not begin until the late 1870s/1880s).

By mid 20th century, declining interest in the cultural activities of the Round Lake Association led to its demise in the 1960s. After the association was dissolved, the village was incorporated in 1969 to take its place.
