The stately King's Garden flourishes behind the Pavilion, the former hotel and Pell family estate on Lake Champlain below Fort Ticonderoga. Responsible for purchasing and preserving the Fort and its environs, generations of the Pell family enjoyed gardens where military troops and early settlers once cultivated food crops.
