Here on this hilltop once stood soldiers’ barracks, storehouses, a kitchen and a brewery. At its peak, Fort Edward served as a small, but busy military hub. Today, the blockhouse and cannon remain as reminders of the fort’s important role in securing British rule in the 1750s, while Britain and France battled for control of North America.
