Crown Point

In depth

The Town of Crown Point spans more than 80 square miles, but its hamlet is a warm, welcoming small town. Situated directly on the Adirondack Coast, Crown Point connects the Adirondacks to all of New England via the 2011 Lake Champlain Bridge.

Crown Point State Historic Site, adjacent to the bridge, boasts two National Historic Landmarks - Fort St. Frederic and Fort Crown Point. There is also a museum and interpreters to tell the story. This location is the eastern terminus of the North Country National Scenic Trail, which stretches more than 4,000 miles to North Dakota. While at the historic site, make sure to enjoy the Champlain Memorial Lighthouse, New York State Campground, and Lake Champlain Bridge Heritage Area Trail.

Ironville, a separate hamlet of the town, is known as the “birthplace of the Electrical Age.” Learn about this first industrial use of electricity, as well as the town's rich iron mining industry and its involvement in the Civil War, with a visit to the Penfield Homestead Museum.

New York state and Crown Point boat launches provide easy access to Lake Champlain for recreation.
