Despite the beauty of the Champlain Valley, it has been the site of dark and
mysterious events; it is not surprising that some spirits linger in this
otherwise tranquil place. Fort Ticonderoga saw some of early America's
bloodiest battles, and American, French and British ghosts still stand
guard. A spirit walks the halls of SUNY Plattsburgh, even after his
original haunt burned in 1929. Champlain's islands--Stave, Crab, Valcour
and Garden--all host otherworldly inhabitants, and unidentified
creatures and objects have made appearances on the water, in the sky and
in the forests surrounding the lake. Join Burlington's own Thea Lewis
as she explores the ghosts and legends that haunt Lake Champlain.
