Located in upstate New York, Fort Ticonderoga was originally built by the French in the 1750s. Over the next 30 years, the fort saw a number of "visitors", including Ethan Allen, Benedict Arnold, General John Burgoyne, and other military types. The fort fell out of use in the 1780s, and while it was a type of tourist destination during the 19th century, it was not restored as a more viable destination until the early 20th century. Here on this site, visitors can learn about the fort, its history, and about the various seasonal events that take place on the grounds. In the "History" area, visitors can learn about the fort's transformation over the past three centuries, and also learn about their scholarly collections. Moving on, the site also features a few rousing performances by their fife & drums corps, along with a video section with several highlights from the fort's interior.
