Crown Point History

Hey folks! I just put this together for the Facebook ADK history and folklore group. I figured there may be some interest here too.

Quick background: I work for the New York State Museum's Archaeology firm (Cultural Resource Survey Program website). There was fieldwork done at Crown Point by CRSP in 1978, 1984, 1992 and 2007 in preparation for various construction projects within the park.

A report was written in 2008 synthesizing the results of the 1992 and 2007 surveys. I was tasked with the historic context for that report so I took what I wrote and sort of smooshed it into this blog post.

Crown Point History

check it out if a like and have a great weekend.

Thank you for posting this. I visited Crown Point Historic Site for the first time last month and was taken with the ruins and the history of the place.
