WHERE ARE WE?

The Heritage Museum is located in the "1888 Building" next to Percy Thompson Bicentennial Park. The museum is housed in the former main office building of the Ticonderoga Pulp & Paper Company (later International Paper Company) at 137 Montcalm Street in Ticonderoga. Our beautiful building is the anchor for the park entrance.

Constructed in 1888, our late Victorian architectural style building is registered on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The structure is a two-story brick laid in common bond with a rectangular brick addition on the north end of the building constructed around 1910. Both sections have gray slate gable roofs, white painted wood trim, and a denticulated brick cornice.

NORMAL HOURS OF OPERATION

The Museum operates on a seasonal schedule (Labor Day Weekend to Columbus Day Weekend). We open Memorial Day weekend (Saturday, Sunday, Monday) and operate on a weekend only schedule until the last weekend in June when we transition to a daily schedule. We resume a limited Thursday - Sunday schedule after Labor Day until the Columbus Day weekend. This season the Museum will offer an additional four days of operation past the normal Columbus Day closing. See scheduling information below.

VISIT THE percy thompson bicentennial PARK

Need some time outside? You can find the Percy Thompson Bicentennial Park right outside our museum door. Children love Bicentennial Park. Dogs, other than service animals, are not allowed in the park. The park offers bike trails and a playground for testing the fundamentals of industry - pendulums, inclined planes, industrial springs, and of course, people power. The Gazebo in Bicentennial Park hosts many events through the summer. Walk around the park and through the covered "Kissing Bridge". This area once served the Ticonderoga Pulp & Paper Company's and later the International Paper Company's lower mill.

PLEASE NOTE: Per order of the Town of Ticonderoga, all non-official vehicle entry into the park is PROHIBITED except for vehicles with an official handicapped permit.

walk la chute river trail

The La Chute River interpretive Trail begins just outside the museum. Pick up a map inside and learn about local waterpower, papermaking, geology and ecology along the quarter-mile riverside walk.

You can also take a guided tour of the Ticonderoga's past industry which once operated along the river. Tours are hosted by the Ticonderoga Heritage Museum and provide an informative guided tour booklet which allows you to see how these industries looked back in their day.
