Caroga Arts Collective Kicks Off the Public Phase of Its Capital Campaign

Caroga Arts Collective announced the launch of the public phase of its Sherman’s Legacy Campaign, revealing renderings of the new amphitheater to be
built next to the original Sherman’s building, along with a new year-round artist home at the former Schine family property known as Myhill.

The amphitheater is anticipated to join Sherman’s as an iconic landmark in the Town of Caroga that is sought after by audiences, artists, and visitors from across the country. The year-round home at Myhill will support this work, providing critically needed housing for artists, administrative offices, and teaching facilities, while serving as a gathering space for the community.

Fort Ticonderoga Association Announces Completion of $9 Million Pavilion Project and Details Plans For Future Growth

$70 million effort is one of the largest economic development projects in the North Country

Fort Ticonderoga announced today the completion of the $9 million restoration of the 1826 National Historic Landmark, the Pavilion.

The Pavilion restoration and adaptive re-use project was partially funded with a $2,445,000 grant from the New York State Council for the Arts, $500,000 from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, and $100,000 from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation. Additionally, a grant of $70,544 from I LOVE NY supported the expanded visitor experience in the Pavilion node, including the Carillon Boat and the dock infrastructure. The remainder of the Pavilion project was made possible by generous private donor and foundation support, as well as a historic tax credit partnership with Arrow Corporation.

Fort Ticonderoga also announced it has raised nearly $20 million towards the $70 million capital campaign to further enhance the visitor experience. The next phase includes the acquisition of the single most important private collection of 18th-century militaria and the construction of a new state-of-the-art museum to house and display the growing collections of historical importance. The museum will serve as the premier North American military history museum, spanning colonization through the new American nation’s creation.
