We have toured the famous and historic Fort Ticonderoga on the shore of Lake Champlain in Upstate NY. Below the Fort is the very large William Pell Estate as his family bought Fort Ticonderoga and the surrounding land in the late 1700’s. They built the summer home overlooking Lake Champlain and eventually turned it into a hotel with tours of Fort Ticonderoga until 1900. Stephen Pell took over and started to renovate and restore the Fort that was dilapidated and falling down. This small memorial out in the corner of the field is a burial monument.
