Ticonderoga, NY – The Ticonderoga Historical Society invites the public to visit the 29th Annual Festival of Trees, taking place at the Hancock House through December 29.

Each year community organizations, businesses, school groups and clubs assist in decorating the Hancock House by providing a decorated tree, centerpiece, gingerbread house or other festive holiday art. This year, nearly 40 trees and displays are in place on three floors of the historic house museum. Many of the trees and displays feature a specific theme or decorative motif.

The Hancock House is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am until 4 pm. “Pop-Up” hours may take place depending on staff availability. The public is invited to call 518-585-7868 to see if the house is open for extended hours or days.

Founded in 1897 and chartered in 1909, the Ticonderoga Historical Society advances the preservation and interpretation of history through its collections, programs and community outreach. The Historical Society makes area history an integral part of community life by connecting past and present.
