"When completed, Ticonderoga will have a unique artifact on its main street and the museum will have an exciting and attractive addition to the water power exhibit," Steve Boyce, museum president, said.
Besides exhibits, the Ticonderoga Heritage hosts a series of children's programs each summer. This year's children's programs include Friendly Frogs, Creepy Critters, Darting Dragonflies, Boat Building, Block Printing and Pottery. The children's programs, held every Wednesday and Friday at 9 a.m. in July and August, are free.
The 1888 Building is an exhibit in itself. It was once headquarters to the International Paper Co. mill that operated along the adjacent LaChute River. When IP moved its mill a few miles north of the hamlet, the building was given to the town. The museum board leases the building. In the past few years the building has received a $100,000 facelift and there are ongoing plans for further improvements.
The museum is handicapped accessible.
