The village of Lake George was originally known as Caldwell, a name preserved in the Caldwell Presbyterian Church. Located on the southern end of Lake George within the eastern edge of the Adirondack Park, the village and surrounding area were on the route between the British and French colonies, and were often traversed by military forces during the Colonial wars. A reconstruction of Fort William Henry, which replaces the original burned during the French and Indian War, is within the village and serves as a living museum.

In the last quarter of the 19th century the area began to become an important tourist destination. Railroad tracks ran onto the steamboat docks on the south end of Lake George. From there steamboats ran several times a day to the hotels further north on the lake. The Lake George Steamboat Company continues to operate steamboats out of Lake George.

The Village of Lake George was incorporated in 1903. Besides the fort with its many associations, historic points of interest include the defunct railway station and a 19th-century courthouse and jail, now operated as a museum by the local historical society. The beach at one motel in the village features a plaque marking the site where the Marquis de Montcalm landed with his army preparatory to attacking the fort. A plaque at the site of the Bloody Pond Massacre is a short distance south of the village along US 9.
