Heritage Museum: Ticonderoga Industrial History

Entrance to the Heritage Museum

Saturday and Sunday 10:00-4:00

Summer fun for kids at the Heritage Museum will return in 2018.

The industrial history of Ticonderoga can't be told without describing paper mills, graphite mining and pencils. The Heritage Museum preserves and interprets that history.  Housed in the "1888 building," the museum is the last remaining structure of the Ticonderoga Pulp and Paper Company that once covered the area now known as Bicentennial Park.

History of the Pencil Exhibit
The museum hosts historically accurate exhibits and creative children's workshops. The museum's displays and exhibits interpret the manufacturing techniques and the history of the International Paper Company, the American Graphite Company (makers of the famous Dixon-Ticonderoga pencils), and other industries of the area.
