Fort Ticonderoga is the site of strategic military significance in the 18th century, landmark preservation in the 19th century, and monumental restoration in the 20th century. Today, Fort Ticonderoga is an independent non-profit educational organization, a thriving learning campus, a museum, and a major cultural destination in one of America's most beautiful settings.
