Located entirely within the Adirondack Park, Ticonderoga has long been known for its rich natural resources like lumber from its vast wooded areas and its graphite mines. During the town's infancy, settlers harnessed the powers of Lake George as it fell into Lake Champlain with a series of dams to allow the town to truly thrive. After Ticonderoga was connected by the Champlain canal to the south and the Chambly canal to the north, the town became an economic powerhouse that helped fuel the birth of a new nation. Ticonderoga captures the rich history of a community that was shaped by its millers, blacksmiths, and farmers. Today, Ticonderoga is a destination for tourists who flock to the area to enjoy the same resources that were originally used for survival and to visit its historic fort.
