Fort Ann: History in the Adirondacks
For a region known for and dominated by their mountains, the Adirondacks have a fair amount of water. In fact, in some ways the lakes of the Adirondacks run the mountains a close second.
In the town of Fort Ann, this is obvious: one part of the town is in the Adirondack Park, and another looks out over the waters of Lake George. It was a tactical spot during the days of French and English territories, and various forts were built near, on, or around this site before Fort Ann was founded in the late 1700s. It became a town towards the second quarter of the 19th century, and its military significance has dwindled. So what is Fort Ann known for now? Water. And lots of it.
