1906 · Shelburne, Vermont · Original owner: Champlain Transportation Company · Moved to museum: 1955 The 220-foot Ticonderoga is America's last remaining walking beam side-wheel passenger steamer, and a National Historic Landmark. Serving a daily north-south route on Lake Champlain, the boat transported passengerd as well as local farm produce, livestock , and dry goods. The Ticonderoga was used as a troop ferry during both World Wars and in later years has a breif career as a floating casino. In 1955, the steamer was moved two miles overland on specially laid tracks from Shelburne Bay to the Museum. This remarkable feat was captured on film and ia shown daily. Today the boat portrays life on board in 1923 and listening stations provide firsthand accounts of work and travel. Gallery Talk. Full Steam Ahead: Walking Tours of the Ticonderoga 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily, May 1 - October 31.
