NPS-ANHA Champlain valley tour

On October 10, Lake Champlain Basin staff and partners proudly showed off some of the best of what the Champlain Valley National Heritage Area has to offer. CVNHP hosted the fall meeting of national heritage areas from around the eastern U.S., attended by visitors from as far as Mississippi and Illinois. For many, it was their first visit to Vermont and the Adirondacks, and they weren’t disappointed. The day’s rain didn’t dampen spirits as they toured some of the highlights: ECHO, Fort Ticonderoga, Crown Point, Chimney Point, and the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. The fall foliage and the region’s rich cultural heritage prompted many oohs and aahs, along with a bounty of photos. This gallery is a compilation of the best submissions by participants.

While the LCBP traditionally focuses on the landscape that drains into Lake Champlain, the area of consideration for the CVNHP includes any historic site or community along the "linked navigable waterways" of Lake Champlain, Lake George, the Champlain Canal, and the Upper Hudson River that contains a physical, cultural, or historical resource that represent the CVNHP’s interpretive themes. The Vermont and New York counties within the Partnership include Grand Isle, Franklin, Chittenden, Addison, Rutland, Bennington, Clinton, Essex, Warren, Saratoga and Washington.
