Economic Development

It's the time of opportunity in Tupper Lake! 

Over the past few years in Tupper Lake there has been an economic development resurgence. On Park Street, empty windows have been eliminated and now we see many new businesses opened and spruced up store fronts. Downtown Tupper Lake has also seen a boost in industry with the opening of Raquette River Brewing and the revitalization of The Faust Motel, along with long time businesses P-2's Irish Pub, Main Street Restaurant, and The Lumberjack Inn. Although Tupper Lake has seen great progression, there is still room for new business and new industry in the town.
