  • Note: Fort Ann is a beautiful rural community whose history is full of fascinating anecdotes. The town lies on what is known as the war-path of the nation, and has been the scene of many war parties from early Indian raids through the Burgoyne and Carleton expeditions during the Revolution. Fort Ann was also the site of a very important Revolutionary War battle that saw the nation's new "Stars and Stripes" flown for the first time in battle. The battle, which took place on July 8, 1777, was of great strategic importance and helped America win its independence.

    Fort Ann at the present time is mostly a farming town full of historic, well-preserved homes and old canal locks with much of their original stonework still intact.

    The village's Old Stone House Library is one of the town's landmarks. A gift of the Knapp family, land owners in the Shelving Rock area of Fort Ann, the 159-year old building now serves as a public library. Together with such historic landmarks as the Tuppers Farm Museum, the library reminds us of the proud spirit of a town that has had a fascinating history.
