Ticonderoga is a town in Essex County, New York, USA. The population was 5,042 at the 2010 census. The name comes from the Mohawk tekontaró:ken, meaning "it is at the junction of two waterways".The town of Ticonderoga is in the southeastern part of the county and is south of Plattsburgh.HistoryThe crossing between Lakes George and Champlain had been used by natives for thousands of years. In the 17th century, French explorers such as Samuel de Champlain explored the area.The town was located on the direct route, utilizing rivers and two long lakes, between New York City to the south and the French settlement of Montreal to the north. The town was the setting for historic battles and maneuvers during both the French and Indian War and the American Revolutionary War. Fort Ticonderoga, constructed by the French, who called it Fort Carillon, in the 1750s, marked the location of an important portage between the two lakes.The town of Ticonderoga was formed in 1804 from part of the town of Crown Point.
