About this spot
Ft. Ticonderoga was built by the French to control access to the St. Lawrence River Valley in the mid-1750's. British forces captured the fort in 1759. The fort changed hands twice during the American Revolution. It was abandoned by the late 1700's and fell into disrepair. It was rebuilt in the 20th century by private groups.

Not all of the exhibits and cannon were originally part of the fort. Several British 24-pounder cannon, and some artifacts in the museum, are from other sources.
