Delightful ruin ! I camped here solo about 25 years ago . Played bagpipe tunes on a portable tape player , drank cognac and waited for the spirits . I soon fell asleep and awoke to birds singing and sunshine . It was superb.

Gloriously vacant. One of the best picnic spots on the lake.


The last time I visited Crown Point there was nobody there except us. Doesn't look like there was much of a crowd when you visited either.

Crown Point it is! The massive fort built by Amherst after the French blew up their smaller bastion Fort St. Frederic in 1759 was a behemoth that makes Fort Ti look like a modest summer cottage. We took a detour up that way before the festivities got under way at Ticonderoga on a gorgeous Friday afternoon. I'll post some more about this place and its significance in a little while. Lots of F&I reenactment stuff is ahead of it in the queue, though, as well as the ongoing Knyphausen series and a week of impending vacation with a gigantic Ogden /Barker reunion / memorial service / beach party thrown in for good measure.


Crown Point?

Anthony Turner

Is it Fort Ticonderoga? (That's where you said you would be this past weekend.)
