WebSight Design is proud to announce our new client, Fort Ticonderoga. Along with now providing them with hosting services, we completely redid the site with a new design, an easy-to-navigate site structure, and a back-end with a Content Management System. With the robust CMS, the client can log in and make updates to nearly every page, add additional pages when needed, manage the photos on the home page, and post upcoming events to their event calendar for prospective visitors to the Fort. It saves a considerable amount of time and gives them strong autonomy. The site also presents several interesting e-commerce features, such as making a tax-deductible donation to keep Ticonderoga's doors open. You can also join the Friends of Fort Ticonderoga and enjoy several benefits. Finally, you will discover the Fort Ticonderoga Museum store that offers a wide variety of specialty products for children, youths, and adults. It is considered the best history bookstore in the region! We worked closely with all of the Fort Ticonderoga staff, particularly with Beth Hill, the executive director, to create a site that inspires American history and shows the magic of this place of interest.
Fort Ticonderoga, formerly Fort Carillon, is one of the great places in American history. It is located near the south end of Lake Champlain in upstate New York. Built by the French between 1754 and 1757 during the Seven Years' War, it was of strategic importance during the 18th-century colonial conflicts between Great Britain and France and again played a role during the American Revolutionary war. The Fort is now a tourist attraction, early American military museum, and research center. Fort Ticonderoga's museum offers visitors the opportunity to discover the objects that helped shape the nations of North America! Historic weapons, engraved powder horns, and everyday objects used by soldiers help tell the story of how history was made at Ticonderoga. Moreover, Fort Ticonderoga offers more than one hundred exciting and unique events and programs each year.
