Fort William Henry:
Lake George, NY


During the French and Indian War (1754-1763), Fort William Henry was built by the British on the southern side of Lake George to protect the colonies from their French enemies.

Fort William Henry Museum is a duplicate of the genuine fort of old. Fort William Henry makes history come alive.  Soldiers, dressed as the British looked during the war, take you on a tour of the Fort and explain the mindset and lifestyles of the British. During each tour, a soldier shoots a rifle and canon to demonstrate how the British fought.

Children can get a hands-on experience as they are invited to dress as British Soldiers, join the royal army and march with their commander.

Fort William Henry is about taking history and making it come alive!
