Fort La Presentation


This lighthouse marks the point at which the Oswegatchie River enters the St. Lawrence River at what is now Ogdensburg. That peninsula is where the original French trading post, settlement and fort known as Fort La Presentation once stood. That location is steeped in French and Indian War history and steps are underway to rebuild the fort at that location.
