Interpretive panels to highlight Champlain's War of 1812 history

The two locations are among the most recent to receive funding for interpretive panels through Patrick's efforts. Previously, grants for panels were awarded and used for panels at Point au Fer and St. Mary's Church. Last November, the town of Champlain was awarded a grant for an interpretive panel at the former Dewey's Tavern, located at the intersection of State Route 276 and Prospect Hill Road. The building there was where two of the four Prisoner of War treaties negotiated during the War of 1812 were signed and was home to American and British army encampments during the conflict.

The Dewey's Tavern interpretive panel and panels for the Pliny Moore home and stone farmhouse are expected to be completed and installed later this summer.
