Tupper Lake is a town in the southwest corner of Franklin County, New York, United States. The population was 5,971 at the 2010 census. The town contains a village called Tupper Lake. Until July 2004, the town was known as "Altamont", not to be confused with the village of Altamont in Albany County. And the 49th biggest town in New York.HistoryIn 1850 the Pomeroy Lumber Company began a logging operation in the area. A clearing left by clear-cutting the forest by Raquette Pond became the site of the village of Tupper Lake. In the 1890s, a large number of buildings were erected, but in 1899 a fire burned 169 of them to the ground. As the lumber business swelled, the village of Faust became a railroad hub, and so the village of Tupper Lake prospered.In the 1940s the villages of Faust and Tupper Lake combined to become the village of Tupper Lake. The former village of Faust began where Main Street meets Demars Boulevard and continued west beyond the cemetery. The former village of Faust is now known as "The Junction", still called to this day by the people of Tupper Lake. It was so named due to the junction of railroad lines located in Faust. The only reference left to the town of Faust is the Faust Motel, located on Main Street. The Faust Roundhouse (one of the largest buildings in the area at the time) was located behind Web Row and near the railroad station. It burned to the ground in the 1940s.The Oval Wood Dish Corporation mill was located in the area between the villages of Faust and Tupper Lake and was originally owned by the Sisson family of Potsdam, New York. The area encompassing the mill and the houses and apartments built across from the mill for the workers was called "Sissonville". Through neglect the buildings eventually went to ruin and were demolished. The large smokestack bearing the letters "OWD" in the center of town still stands as an icon of Tupper Lake's lumbering past.Add Tupper Lake and other destinations in United States to your travel itinerary using our United States travel website.
