Uncovering the Pavilion Collection
Meredith Moore, Fort Ticonderoga Curatorial Assistant
The Fort Ticonderoga Fort Fever Series features presentations by Fort Ticonderoga staff.
Built along the shore of Lake Champlain as a private retreat on the grounds of Fort Ticonderoga, the Pavilion served as a summer home for many generations of the Pell family. Over the last two years, Fort Ticonderoga Curatorial Assistant Meredith Moore has worked to document the extensive collection of fine, decorative, and folk art from the Pavilion that has accumulated for over nearly two centuries, making it accessible to the public for the first time.
Join Meredith as she highlights the gems of the collection, the exciting discoveries, and the methodical process of reconciling over a century’s worth of documentation.
Your participation in this online program supports Fort Ticonderoga’s mission to preserve, educate, and provoke an active discussion about the past and its importance to present and future generations.
This project was made possible in part by The Decorative Arts Trust, Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership, the Transferware Collectors Club, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
