Welcome to the Ticonderoga Historical Society Website
Click on the image below or the links at left to find out more about the Society and the Hancock House.
The Hancock House was a gift to The New York State Historical Association (NYSHA) from native son and philanthropist Horace Moses. He built the house as a repository for the purpose of perpetuating "American Traditions in History and the Fine Arts," and it served in this capacity for many years as the NYSHA "Headquarters House," although it can no longer claim this title. This imposing Georgian mansion is a replica of Thomas Hancock's (uncle to John Hancock) Beacon Hill residence built in 1737 and 1741, and demolished in 1863.
Traveling to the Hancock House is extremely easy. From the north or south, take NY Interstate 87 to Exit 28 and follow the signs for Route 74. Take Route 74 for 17.3 miles into Ticonderoga, and turn right onto Route 9N. The Hancock House is at the large circular road, Moses Circle, which runs around the Liberty Monument.
