Crown Point

Trip Planner USA  /  New York State  /  Crown Point
Crown Point is a town in Essex County, New York, USA, located on the west shore of Lake Champlain. The population was 2,024 at the 2010 census. The name of the town is a direct translation of the original French name, "Pointe à la Chevelure."The Town of Crown Point is on the eastern edge of the county. It is 39mi southwest of Burlington, VT, 44mi north-northeast from Queensbury, NY, 108mi south of Montreal, Quebec, and 90mi north of Albany, New York.HistoryTwo European forts were built here by colonists because of its strategic location at the narrows of Lake Champlain. The forts preceded organization of the town by more than half a century: first was Fort St. Frédéric built by the French in 1731, who came to this area from their colonial settlements to the north at Quebec and Montreal. They competed with the British for the fur trade with Native Americans in the area.During the Seven Years' War (known as the French and Indian War in North America), the British gained control of this area. Before that, the French retreated and destroyed their fort to keep it out of the hands of the British. The latter built Fort Crown Point in 1759, then the largest earthen fort in their colonies. With British victory in the war, after 1763 France ceded all its territory in North America east of the Mississippi River to Britain.
