The fort will continue to offer a family-friendly tour each night at 7:00 p.m. This is a walking tour of the grounds around the Fort William Henry Hotel and Conference Center, as well as some nearby locations in Lake George Village. Visitors will be treated to stories about some of the spirits that still inhabit the area.
A newly-developed ghost tour has been added at 9:00 p.m. This tour is intended for adults only. It takes place within the fort and focuses on paranormal investigations that have taken place on the property. There is also an overview of paranormal investigation methods and equipment.
Fort William Henry has been featured on the SyFy Channel’s “Ghost Hunters” and hosted “Preserving the Haunt – Para History Con” this past April. Glory Haunt Hounds and Beyond Ghosts co-sponsored that event, which included several experts in the field.
According to John Tobin from Glory Haunt Hounds, “The paranormal activity was very high and almost everyone had an experience. The Fort did not disappoint on a paranormal level.”
Reservations are required for both tours and can be made by calling 518-964-6649.
The Fort William Henry Museum is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. with guided tours on the hour. The last tour begins at 5:00 p.m.
