Paul Smiths, New York

Paul Smiths, New York is a hamlet in the Town of Brighton in Franklin County, New York, on Lower Saint Regis Lake, in the Adirondacks, 10 miles north of Saranac Lake, located at 44°26' North 74°15' West.

The hamlet was named after the Paul Smith's Hotel (formally known as the Saint Regis House), founded in 1859 as one of the first wilderness resorts in Adirondacks by Apollos Smith. Paul Smith's College was built on the site of the hotel, and was funded by the estate of Smith's son Phelps, who died in 1937.
