Fort Ticonderoga developed the Heroic Maze with a professional maze design company from Utah that used computer technology to translate intricate designs onto the landscape, creating a fun and exciting quest. The agricultural history at Fort Ticonderoga dates to 1756 when the French built the Garrison Gardens below the walls of the Fort. Today the formal display King's Garden, along with educational Discovery Gardens, protected battlefields, sustainable modern farming practices, and the corn maze continue this legacy.  All proceeds from the Heroic Maze support Fort Ticonderoga's mission to ensure that present and future generations learn from the struggles, sacrifices and victories that shaped the nations of North America and changed world history.
