Coffin Point

Historic Districts and Sites

This point is adjacent to the Crown Point State Historic Site. In August of 1775, the 6th Pennsylvania Battalion, along with other American forces, constructed a fort on Coffin Point, only to destroy and abandon it in October. This retreat was a result of Benedict Arnold’s defeat in the battle of Plattsburgh.
