Fort Ticonderoga

Ticonderoga, New York

For most of the second half of the 18th century, Fort Ticonderoga was the military key to the Champlain Valley, New York, the Hudson River Valley and western New England and Montreal. This strategic location made Fort Ticonderoga one of the most important military sites in the struggle for control of North America in the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. Fort Ticonderoga is located in Ticonderoga, NY. The 18th century restored stone fort is located on 2,000 acres overlooking Lake Champlain. Visitors experience costumed interpreters, musket demonstrations, museum exhibits, and historic gardens, plus the Fife & Drum Corps and artillery demonstrations during July and August. Also on the site are a store, restaurant and picnic grounds
