Champlain Monument and Lighthouse


An official Path Through History Site! In the early 20th century, the existing lighthouse on this site was rebuilt to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain`s discovery of Lake Champlain. The new stone lighthouse, a joint effort of the States of New York and Vermont, is classical in design and incorporates a monumental bronze of de Champlain accompanied by one fellow Frenchman and one Huron native. The sculptural plaque below it was a gift from the French government and created by Auguste Rodin. Steps lead down to a lakeside pier.
