THE DOG WALL

The famous Dog Wall is a collection of numerous pictures of our customer's dogs that we frame and display in the restaurant. Being dog people, we know the special bond that people have with man's best friend, and can't think of anything more interesting than looking at hundreds of pictures as loveable, interesting and special as every dog truly is. While every pooch makes it on The Dog Wall, there can be only one Mutt of The Month. The Camp Ticonderoga Mutt of The Month winner receives a doggie bag with contents fit for a dog.

OUR BUILDING'S HISTORY

When the city of Troy was first established in the early 1820's, Henry Blount purchased the parcel of land that is now the Sylvan Glen Golf Course and built a sprawling two-story home.  He and his wife, Elizabeth, raised seven children in this home.  Two of Blount's grandsons, Harry and Frank, continued to farm the land after his death.  In the early 1900's, the house was modified into separate living quarters for three maiden aunts of the Blount family.  Descendants of the Blount family continued to live in the home until May 13, 1924 when the home and land were sold to develop the golf course.  The home was then remodeled to house a restaurant.  Previous establishments include:  The Double Eagle, The Wooden Horse and Shark Creek Inn.  The former Blount family home has been home to Camp Ticonderoga since 1996.back to the top


THE GHOST!

Heard of Casper?  Meet Hannah, the Ghost of Camp Ticonderoga.  The legend has been passed on through employees of the various restaurants that have occupied the Blount House.  Supposedly, Hannah hung herself in one of the upstairs bedrooms and now haunts the former home's inhabitants.  Strange noises have been heard and unexplainable things have been witnessed, such as flickering or dimming lights, rattling dishes and objects falling for no reason.back to the top
