FORT TICONDEROGA RECEIVES $500,000 IN FEDERAL FUNDING
Fort Ticonderoga President Beth L. Hill announced this week that Fort Ticonderoga was recently awarded a $500,000 appropriation to help support the restoration of the historic fort walls.
“Following years of advocacy for preserving Fort Ticonderoga, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer has secured $500,000 for the restoration and rehabilitation of the iconic fort walls,” said Hill. “Senator Schumer visited Fort Ticonderoga in August 2017 and promised then to fight to deliver funding to repair the site’s aging walls, and in his first omnibus as majority leader, Senator Schumer delivered support to Fort Ticonderoga, a significant national historic site.”
