Ticonderoga Historical Society Presents
Program on Early Mapper of the Adirondacks
The Ticonderoga Historical Society will present a free public program on Friday, August 5 at 7 pm at the Hancock House, 6 Moses Circle, Ticonderoga.
“Mapping the Adirondacks” will be presented by Pete Nelson, who will discuss the life and work of Rochester physician William Watson Ely.
“Who produced the first detailed map of the Adirondack wilderness, showing most of the water courses, peaks and topography,” said Nelson. “The answer might surprise, for it was not one of the well-known professionals, but an amateur.” Ely’s Map of the New York Wilderness dominated the world of Adirondack maps from the 1860’s until nearly the turn of the century.
Nelson is a mathematics teacher and history lecturer at North Country Community College, a co-founder of the Adirondack Diversity Initiative and an avid writer, lecturer and Adirondack history buff whose articles appear regularly in numerous regional publications. He is currently writing a book on early Adirondack surveyors.
The program will be held outdoors, under a tent and attendees should bring their own lawn chairs. Reservations may be made by calling the Hancock House at 518-585-7868 or via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Bacon Brothers: Out of Memory Tour
Saturday, July 30, 8 pm
Bound by blood and a mutual love of American roots music, The Bacon Brothers have spent the past quarter-century in a creative whirl, funneling their shared DNA into a genre-bending sound. They call that sound “Forosoco” — a blend of folk, rock, soul, and country influences, delivered by two songwriters who were born to collaborate — and it’s taken the siblings across the world, from shows in Japan to performances at American landmarks like Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry.
