The Village of Champlain has a long history of military, railroad, and industrial activity, including an ironworks, shipyards that produced canal boats, and the Brendenberg Brothers wooden ski factory. Our walk will include seeing a historic commercial center in transition, the reconstructed home of village founder Pliny Moore, and residential streets rich with examples of late 19th and early 20th century architecture.
We will meet at the Samuel de Champlain History and Welcome Center.
This day will offer two tour times to choose from, at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The tour will begin with an introduction on the town’s heritage and the walking portion of the tour will last approximately two hours.
The May Walking Tours have been made possible by a generous contribution from Price Chopper’s Golub Foundation.
