Having lots of genealogy and historical involvement in the area, I was hoping to find more information on the years around the Revolutionary War. There wasn't much. However, the hostess in the Historical Society was very friendly and informative. There were some nice displays, and I'm glad we stopped.

Just seeing what John Hancock's house looked like in Boston back in the 1700's is worth the visit. It was build using the original blueprints for his house in Boston.

What a Surprise! This home was amazing and we kept finding hidden gems throughout the home. They did such an incredibly job restoring/recreating this home. Plus there are areas that have local touches added. Truly blown away with how nice this is! KUDOS to all who help everyday with this GEM :)))

The Ticonderoga Historical Society is located in a beautiful Georgian style home at 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga. The building was constructed in 1926 and patterned after the Hancock House in Boston, built in the 1730's. There is a gift shop, a museum, and very helpful people who are attentive and know their history. The building is open 10-4, Wednesday-Saturday, year... More
