Adirondack Daily Enterprise, September 8, 1956According to Jim Dwyer, local church member, the church's history dates back to the early 1880s when the Seth Eells family, who were  Seventh-day Adventists, moved in stages from West Pierrepont to Lake Placid. The Stevens family lived next door, and when 19 member of the Keene  Seventh-day Adventist Church decided to organize a new church in Saranac Lake in November 1902, there were a number of members of the Stevens and Eells families within the group. They built  a humble church building . . . next door to what is now La Bella Ristorante on Lake Flower Avenue. It was exchanged in 1960 for the property in town, and the little country church was torn down and the property excavated to make way for additional parking space at the Cedar Post, now La Bella Ristorante. . . .
