Rogers Island Visitor Center


In 1766, after the French & Indian War was over, Fort Edward was ordered evacuated and its stores were moved to the British fort at Crown Point, leaving Fort Edward to decay. Although the fort itself was in ruins during the Revolutionary War, Fort Edward remained strategically located on the Great Military Warpath and troops garrisoned in the remaining barracks on the island. In 1777, they were forced to flee when General John Burgoyne's army passed through en route to Saratoga. Visit the Rogers Island Visitor Center, a Lakes to Locks Passage Heritage Center, for more information.
