The Hancock House Museum in Ticonderoga will move to fall hours beginning September 6. The four-story museum and research library, located at 6 Moses Circle, will be open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 am until 4 pm during the months of September and October.
New exhibits in place this year include “Mapping the Adirondacks” and “Prohibition in the Champlain Valley.” In addition, traveling exhibits relating to women’s suffrage are also on hand and, for the first time, the mysterious Pharaoh Mountain gold “elephant” coin is on display.
“Even though we’ve moved to shorter hours for the fall, we still have a great deal to see within the walls of the Hancock House,” said THS President Bill Dolback. “From the struggle for suffrage to the early surveyors who mapped the Adirondacks, to the mysteries of hidden gold signified by the elephant coin, we’ve got something of interest for everyone.
Visitors are reminded that masks are required and social distancing policies are in effect at the museum. Additional information is available by calling the Hancock House at 518-585-7868 or via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
