• Crown Point Historic Site

    Contains the ruins of Fort St. Frederic, the first French-Canadian fortification in the Southern Champlain Valley, constructed 1734-1737. This Fort was the major French stronghold in the Valley against the British. After 1755, St. Frederic controlled the narrows of Lake Champlain and Fort Carillon protected the portage between Lake George and Lake Champlain. Both forts fell in 1759 to the British General Amherst.  Fort Crown Point was constructed by the British after the capture of Fort St. Frederic in 1759. This massive fortification, enclosing over five acres, was the principal military installation guarding the British Colonies from incursions by the way of Lake Champlain.
