The tip of the peninsula at Crown Point State Historic Site was key to military activity and preserves the fascinating ruins of Fort St. Frédéric built between 1734-1759 by the French, and Fort Crown Point which began construction in 1759 by the British during the French and Indian War. Learn more at the museum via an orientation film, artifacts and exhibits. To the south of the ruins is the Champlain Memorial Lighthouse named for Samuel de Champlain who explored this region in the early 1600s. The unusual neoclassical design features eight Doric columns and a bronze bust by French artist, Auguste Rodin. Climb the 60 steps to the top for a grand vista.
