The historic hamlets of Essex, Keeseville, Westport, Fort Ticonderoga, and Port Henry are lined with interesting historic sites and are a great place for self-guided walking tours. The Crown Point Historic Site and Fort Ticonderoga are key pieces of early American history and provide unique perspectives on the early history of the area. We even have lighthouses, where the story of this large lake and it's own role in shaping the region is celebrated, too.
