Fort or fiction? We’ll explore this question as we walk the property of this pioneering historical reconstruction with architectural historian Richard Longstreth.

Be greeted by Fort President & CEO Beth Hill before touring the extensive works in the company of Curator Matt Keagle. During a beneath-the-walls tour, examine 200 years of fort alterations, ponder preservation of the Log House, and review renovation at the Pell Pavilion. Reflect on the strategic importance of Lake Champlain with Vice President of Operations and Interpretation Stuart Lilie during a private boat cruise aboard the Carillon. Optional afternoon drive up Mt. Defiance for a breathtaking view of the built landscape below.

The tour will be led by architectural historian Richard Longstreth, author of A Guide to Architecture in the Adirondacks and scholar of an upcoming book on Fort Ticonderoga in the 19th- and 20th-centuries.

The tour begins at 9:45 a.m. and ends around 3 p.m.

FEE: $80 for members and $90 for non-members.
