NCPR Home King's Garden at Ft. Ticonderoga
Fort Ticonderoga, the 18th century garrison on the southern tip of Lake Champlain, includes historic gardens containing thousands of flowers, plants and herbs. 1920s landscape architect Marion Coffin designed a pleasure garden for the Pell family's summer home, the Pavillion, at the Fort. It was neglected and almost forgotten until, about ten years ago, workers began to restore the garden to Coffin's plan. Todd Moe toured the King's Garden with Landscape Curator Katie Elzer-Peters. Email this story to a friend!
