Haunted House

Admission: $5 per person $15 per family

At ESC there is always something brewing. Through community partnerships and collaboration, we are better able to serve the Etown community.


We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been awarded a grant from the Generous Acts at Adirondack Foundation - a force for good that pools gifts from generous donors who love the Adirondacks and care about our communities.

This grant will help us to expand capacity in order to regrow our Teen Rec program and expand programs for the whole community. We are so excited for this phase of Center history!



Westelcom has partnered with the Elizabethtown Social Center to offer a community hot spot with a signal strong enough to accommodate many devices in the Social Center building, lawn and parking lot JUST FOR YOU, community members.


Stream video, apps - it will do whatever you need. Please give a call ahead to use the building.


We can almost always find a space for you but sometimes we are full!
