Rooms in the Ticonderoga area can be difficult to find during the height of the summer season. Fort Ticonderoga has reserved a block of rooms at Best Western Plus Ticonderoga Inn & Suites for NEH Summer Scholars. Rooms are $144/night. NEH Summer Scholars will be responsible for reserving their rooms from this block by May 15th and the remaining rooms will be released at that time. Once the 2022 NEH Summer Scholars are selected, Fort Ticonderoga will create a closed Facebook page to assist teachers in finding roommates (if desired) and coordinating travel arrangements.
Best Western Plus Ticonderoga Inn & Suites offers everything for your comfort. Guests feel right at home in one of its 54 nonsmoking rooms in a quiet setting with luxurious bedding. HD televisions, free Wi-Fi, and guest laundry are also available to all guests. Guests also enjoy an extensive continental breakfast, an in-house restaurant, an Adirondack-style pub, an indoor heated pool and hot tub, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility. Situated 3 miles from Fort Ticonderoga and an hour north of Lake George Village, and just a short 20 minutes off exit 28 on I-87.
Wifi internet access is available throughout the Fort Ticonderoga campus, including in the Mars Education Center where most of our program takes place.
Throughout the institute, Fort Ticonderoga staff will share manuscripts and historic artifacts with NEH Summer Scholars. These, along with thousands of other resources, are available online through the Ticonderoga Online Collections Database.
NEH Summer Scholars at Fort Ticonderoga will receive name tags at orientation. We ask that teachers wear their name tags whenever on the grounds of Fort Ticonderoga, as well as while visiting other sites on field trip days. The name tags provide NEH Summer Scholars with a special discount in the museum store throughout the institute.
On July 23 & 24, Fort Ticonderoga hosts a major historical reenactment, “1759: Siege of Carillon.” NEH Summer Scholars will take part in several behind-the-scenes activities on the Saturday of the event and have Sunday as a free day when they have the option to attend programs related to the reenactment.
Fort Ticonderoga has arranged for NEH Summer Scholars to earn 3 graduate credits in Education through Castleton University if they wish. Assignments for graduate credits will be due on September 15, 2022, enabling teachers to complete graduate work after the institute.
