This simple shelter acts as a recreation building at Crown Point State Historic Site. At this site, overlooking the Hudson midway between Albany and Montreal, are the remains of His Majesty's Fort at Crown Point, one of the largest British forts in North America. This fort was taken during the Revolution by Colonel Seth Warren in the same action that saw the taking of Fort Ticonderoga. Visible through the recreation building is the Champlain Memorial Lighthouse, which served as a functioning lighthouse as well as honoring the explorer Samuel de Champlain. This image was created to record the historic site activities of the New York State Conservation Department.
