History will come alive at the Crown Point State Historic Site during 15th annual French and Indian War encampment Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 11 and 12.

— The ruins are among the very few remaining examples of pre-Revolutionary military construction in the United States and both fort ruins have been individually designated as National Historic Landmarks by the U.S. Department of the Interior.

“According to experts, the ‘Crown Point fort, in its ruined but unaltered state, is probably the finest existing architectural and archeological specimen of a superior example of 18th century military engineering anywhere in the United States,’” Hughes said.

For more information about the site, the event or about Friends of Crown Point State Historic Site contact Hughes at 597-4666, visit the museum or go online at www.nysparks.com.
