Fort Ticonderoga Ferry History

The Fort Ticonderoga cable ferry has been carrying passengers and vehicles across Lake Champlain since 1759. However, it was not always a cable ferry.

In 1800, the ferry began using a double-ended sailing scow as its vessel allowing it to traverse the lake in both directions. It was equipped with a sail that could be completely swung around when needed to reverse direction.

In the 1870s, the sailing scow was decommissioned, and a steam ferry took its place. And in the 1880s, the steam ferry barge named Ethan Allen was the vessel making the crossing.

Finally, a cable system was installed in 1946, and a World War I surplus pontoon barge named Fort Ticonderoga began ferry service in 1949. It was replaced in 1959 by a 94-ton barge named Ticonderoga II and was powered by Ethan Allen, a converted tugboat. Addie B replaced the Ethan Allen in 1979 and still powers the Ticonderoga II across the lake today.
