A Favorite Place of Resort for Strangers: The King's Garden at Fort Ticonderoga

$15.00

The Pavilion grounds are most significant for their long, continuous history as a well-documented, cultivated landscape. Follow the evolution of the garden and grounds through the 19th and 20th century, whose power is in the intertwining of landscape and history. Lucinda Brockway thoroughly documents the changing landscape through historical accounts, on-site studies, and oral history, including the contributions of the Pell family who began a legacy of preservation and stewardship at Fort Ticonderoga. Early tourism, the Pavilion, the King's Garden and the roles of landscape architect Marian Coffin and others are presented in a lively social and historical context.
