Fort Ti in better financial shape

Posted: Updated:

One of the nation's oldest historic sites says its most recent season saw increases in attendance, revenues and donations.

Fort Ticonderoga President and CEO Beth Hill says paid attendance increased nearly 6 percent while admissions revenue jumped 18 percent from the year before. Donations were also up 18 percent.

Just a few years ago, the fort's financial situation was so shaky that there was talk it would have to shut down for a season or some of its collection would have to be sold off.
