What Is Distinctive And Authentic To The Character Of The Region

Crown Point has a rich heritage dating back to the 1750s when it was hotly contested by French, British, and American armies. Following the American Revolution the area was turned over to Union and Columbia Colleges. They in turn sold it to a farmer who used it for pasture land and orchards. The New York State Conservation Department acquired the land in 1910. In 1912 the Champlain Memorial Lighthouse was dedicated to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Champlain's discovery of the lake that now bears his name. In 1929 the steamboat pier was constructed and it has become a popular fishing spot. Construction of the campground began in 1915. In 1930, 1951, and 1952 it was expanded to its present size.
