Come explore the beautiful and historic Valcour Island in Lake Champlain. Just two miles long and one mile wide, this spot was the site of America’s first naval engagement with a foreign nation, is home to an 1874 lighthouse, served briefly as a utopian community, was a destination for summer visitors, and is now a part of the Adirondack Forest Preserve. As you hike the island in the company of historians from Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH), you’ll learn about its remarkable past and have access to the Bluff Point lighthouse (listed on the National Register of Historic Places). Price includes round-trip boat ride, guided tour, and entry to lighthouse. Please dress accordingly, and bring your own lunch. For reservations, call AARCH at 518-834-9328. Please have your credit card number and ADKX membership ID number available.
