Ticonderoga: The Place Between Two Waters
Ticonderoga Heritage Museum, NY, 2010
The orientation exhibition answers the question “Why is Ticonderoga here?” by telling the story of the LaChute River and the industries that used its power. The exhibit also features the engineering tricks mastered to re-use and re-train the river to benefit these industries. As part of the experience, visitors receive a “factory badge” prompting them to embark on a discovery tour through the architectural models displayed throughout the museum.
This project recently won the Lakes to Locks Passage Annual Partnership Award for fostering outstanding inter-municipal cooperation and stewardship of natural and historic resources.
