Carillon Boat Purchase
Fort Ticonderoga will be acquiring the Carillon boat this spring, a 60 foot replica of a Thousand Island's Cruise Boat. This is an amazing opportunity to take a giant leap forward as we implement our bold plans for Fort Ticonderoga's future by carrying our epic story to the historic waters of Lake Champlain. You can help make this project a reality with your tax-deductible gift. We have already raised $182,000 through the generosity of our many friends, but your help is needed to raise the remaining $48,000 by April 1.
Log House Preservation
$45,000 will support a historic structure report for this important early 20th-century building.
Located on the Fort Ticonderoga campus, the Log House is considered by historic preservationists to be one of the oldest continuously run road houses in America, serving guests to the site for over 90 years. The report will assess the buildings cultural significance, analyze its current condition and problems of repair, and offer insights into its future.
Iron & Stone: Building Fort Carillon exhibit
$25,750 will support the construction and installation of this exhibit to open in 2015.
Iron & Stone: Building Fort Carillon will explain the progress of building the Fort, the tools and techniques of French masonry construction, and allow visitors to touch, feel and experience the mason’s trade.
