Fort Ticonderoga

Strategically located on Lake Champlain, this star-shaped fort has weathered two wars, five battles and helped shape the history of early America. 

Before New York was a state or America was a country, the French built Fort Ticonderoga to uphold their dominion over the area. Today, you can explore the 18th-century fort and its beautiful Adirondacks surroundings.

The star-shaped fort was constructed in 1759. After France’s defeat in the French and Indian War, it fell into British hands. During the Revolutionary War it again became a hotbed of military activity when the Patriots took control of the complex, only to later lose it to the British.

Take a guided tour of the fort, led by knowledgeable costumed guides. Visit the South Barracks, the main exhibition space, which encompasses three floors of artifacts and displays.  See muskets, pistols, swords and other weapons used in America's Colonial and Revolutionary wars. Learn about the typical diet of soldiers based at the fort. Discover how soldiers' wounds and illnesses were treated when you tour the medical practices exhibition. Watch a musket firing demonstration.

After you've examined historic artifacts, explore the fort's 2,000 acres (809 hectares) of landscape. Hike or drive to the summit of Mount Defiance, once used by both attacking and defending armies. Enjoy the superb views of the fort and surrounding area from here. This experience is not included in Fort Ticonderoga’s general admission, but you can purchase tickets at the entrance gate.

Go on the self-guided 1.7-mile (2.7-kilometer) trail through the Carillon Battlefield where the British and French clashed in 1758 and 1759. Grab a brochure at the trailhead to learn about the remains of fortifications and other features you will pass on your hike.

The fort is situated on the shores of Lake Champlain in Ticonderoga. The town is easily reached by train from New York City and Montreal, although a car is essential to get around. Once you get to the defensive structure, you will find plenty of free parking on-site.

Fort Ticonderoga is open daily from May through November. There are discounts on the admission price for seniors and for children aged between 5 and 12 years. Children 4 years and under get in for free.
