Fort Niagara controlled the water-and-portage route connecting the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario with the rest of the Great Lakes. The French used the fort as a staging area and supply base in the 1750s. It was captured by the British in July 1759 and remained in British control during Pontiac’s War in 1763-1764. Fort Niagara State Park is located in Youngstown, NY and is a National Historic Landmark. Tour original 18th century buildings, see a musket firing demonstration, and during the summer season, take part in a variety of "hands-on" interpretive programs.
