Over the next few years Ticonderoga will be celebrating the 250th anniversary of its settlement in 1764 and the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 along with the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War. A town committee, co-sponsored by the Ticonderoga Heritage Museum and the Ticonderoga Historical Society, has been formed to lead the community in commemorating these historical events. This Memorial Day ceremony to Honor Civil War Veterans is the first of several activities to be coordinated by the committee.
"The Ticonderoga, the First 250 Years Committee invites the community to join the effort to preserve and share our common past," Curtis said. "We encourage individuals, organizations and businesses to celebrate the development of our town over the first 250 years with projects, events and activities that can be shared at any time from the present through 2014, the commemorative year, and preserved as a legacy thereafter. Please consider attending our meetings on the third Wednesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. at the Hancock House."
