Crown Point

Crown Point

Crown Point, town (1990 pop. 1,963), Essex co., NE N.Y., on Lake Champlain. Crown Point is a summer resort on a historic site. The French began building Fort St. Frédéric in 1731. In the French and Indian Wars the fort successfully resisted (1755-56) early English attacks but was demolished (1759) before the advance of Jeffery Amherst. The British began a new fort, Fort Amherst (renamed Crown Point) in 1759. Early in the American Revolution, Crown Point was captured (May 12, 1775) by Seth Warner and a detachment of Green Mountain Boys, but it was abandoned (June 22, 1777) to Gen. John Burgoyne in the Saratoga campaign. Crown Point Reservation, with a museum and ruins of colonial forts, is nearby.
