On July 3, 1609, French explorer Samuel de Champlain and his group canoed south from Canada into an expansive lake and found four islands. Those islands are now the Lake Champlain Islands, and it was that trip that gave birth to Vermont and sparked 400 years of history. Located in the far northwest corner of the state, the islands are well known as a shoreline retreat for all of New England, with their small-town feel and picturesque farmlands. In this birthplace of Vermont, with its rich soil, early settlers found success growing local varieties of apples, which they shipped by steamboat directly to international cities. Several large deposits of unique, dark limestone brought marble trade to the area, and these materials are still mined in working quarries today. The Lake Champlain Islands are a tranquil, yet vibrant area of Vermont, where historical buildings are often used as schools, museums, libraries, and private homes.

The author of Haunted Burlington shares Lake Champlain’s chilling history—from swashbuckling spirits to Champ, “North America’s Loch Ness Monster.” Lake Champlain is located between New York’s majestic Adirondacks and Vermont’s famed Green Mountains. Yet despite the beauty of this region, it has been the site of dark and mysterious events; it is not surprising that some spirits linger in this otherwise tranquil place. Fort Ticonderoga saw some of early America’s bloodiest battles, and American, French and British ghosts still stand guard. A spirit walks the halls of SUNY Plattsburgh, even after his original haunt burned in 1929. Champlain’s islands—Stave, Crab, Valcour and Garden—all host otherworldly inhabitants, and unidentified creatures and objects have made appearances on the water, in the sky and in the forests surrounding the lake. Join Burlington’s Thea Lewis as she explores the ghosts and legends that haunt Lake Champlain. Includes photos! “For Lewis, a gifted storyteller, a good story makes a haunted place all the more compelling.” —Happy Vermont

Located entirely within the Adirondack Park, Ticonderoga has long been known for its rich natural resources like lumber from its vast wooded areas and its graphite mines. During the town's infancy, settlers harnessed the powers of Lake George as it fell into Lake Champlain with a series of dams to allow the town to truly thrive. After Ticonderoga was connected by the Champlain canal to the south and the Chambly canal to the north, the town became an economic powerhouse that helped fuel the birth of a new nation. Ticonderoga captures the rich history of a community that was shaped by its millers, blacksmiths, and farmers. Today, Ticonderoga is a destination for tourists who flock to the area to enjoy the same resources that were originally used for survival and to visit its historic fort.

Around Lake Memphremagog is a pictorial timeline of the thirty-mile-long body of water that shares its Vermont history with Canada. The lake has for thousands of years played a critical role in the lives and history of the Wabanaki. Memlabagwok-the Abenaki name for the lake-was the waterway crossroads at the heart of the western Abenaki homelands. Since the 1600s, Lake Memphremagog has influenced the development of the northern Vermont and southern Canadian towns and villages along its shores. This combined cultural history and heritage is recalled here through sketches, vintage photographs, and postcards.
