Ticonderoga, NY - "Land between two lakes*"
Veterans Road, Ticonderoga
Shown left is proposed drilling map for town new water sources. The town had an option for purchase. The land was studied by AES Northeast for possible town water supply. The town, however found sources on their own land, so the public purchase wasn't necessary (we're told); however, some of the work is done for you and it shows great promise for water sources for a new bottling company.

Warehouses are serviceable, interior roadways to drilling sites in place (bridge need repairs). Great location next to box stores like Walmart™, Tractor Supply™,, etc.
Buildings are currently rented, serviceable and tight, but will need some revitalization. Ticonderoga participates in the PRIDE program, and Essex County's IDA is a vital community business support. Zoned 8.5 APA, this parcel has endless opportunities for housing development, agri-business, water bottling, or other commercial use.
The historical property use was a wonderful apple orchard of "Johnson Farm" (some wild apple trees remain for the artisan wood value - orchard stopped in '80's and some Xmas trees planted). The land also is blessed with glacial level sands from the valley; gravel mining may be possible but unknown quality. There is also a hay field and stream on the land. Subdivision for homes was also reviewed (old plans available). Many trails throughout property and some wetlands with small bridge over stream. Great water source, as the Town of Ticonderoga was interested in the southern parcel for town well drilling, as it appears this parcel to be on the aquifer.

The name "Ticonderoga" is one of the most significant and familiar in American History. This Iroquois word, meaning "the land between the waters," describes the historic portage between Lake Champlain and Lake George used by Native Americans for 10,000 years. Here France and Britain fought in the French and Indian War, and America and Britain struggled during the Revolution. Over fifty plaques throughout the Town of Ticonderoga mark historic sites and remember legendary heroes, including Father Isaac Joques, British Brig. General Lord William Howe, Robert Rogers of the British Colonial Rangers, French Lt. General Marquis de Montcalm, American General Henry Knox, and Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain Boys of Vermont.
The community boasts a significant history in the paper making industry. International Paper's Ticonderoga mill traces its origins to 1882 on the banks of the LaChute River in the village. This former manufacturing site has been reborn as the Bicentennial Park. The existing IP mill, on Shore Airport Road, is one of the few papermaking facilities that encompasses the entire papermaking process - from eight-foot logs at one end to reams of copy paper at the other. On a typical day the Ticonderoga mill produces 850 tons of fine white paper. This Adirondack community was the home of the former "Dixon Crucible Company" which produced the original "Ticonderoga Pencil." Known as “America’s Best Pencil”, Dixon’s Ticonderoga is in the hand of children and adults throughout the world. Everywhere you look in this township you will find history unequalled anywhere else in the United States. From the historic stone fortress of Fort Ticonderoga to the village’s industrial heritage, the childhood of our nation can be experienced here in Ticonderoga.
