Virtual Vermonter - Chimney Point State Historic Site

A popular settlement point for first the Native Americans and later the French, Chimney Point got its name at the close of the French and Indian War, when the British drove the French north into Canada and razed their settlement (Fort de Pieux) to the point that only chimneys remained. Today Chimney Point is a state historic site, offering the largest collection of Native American and early French archeological materials in the state. The Chimney Point Museum hosts a variety of prehistoric to 20th century exhibits, a special section on Ethan Allen folklore and educational programs for kids.

The Chimney Point State Historic Site is located in Addision. It is open late-May to mid-October, Wednesday through Sunday, 9:30-5. The price of admission is $2.50 for adults, with children 14 and under free. Group rates are also available. The site can be reached by phone at 802-759-2412.
