Not unlike the mythological Phoenix that regenerates itself the Ticonderoga Aerie has a local history. The first Ticonderoga Aerie was organized here in March, 1905 with more that thirty birds (as they were called at the time.) The new officers were well represented by the leading members of the business and professional community: W.T. Bennett, George Luther, C.A. Wheeler, Ralph Powers, W.J. Hayes, Daniel Ryan, I. Rothschild, I. Ledger, Louis Forcier, A.A. Gallant, Frank Blanchard and Thomas Corbett. Dr. E.F. Preston, one of Ticonderoga’s foremost Physician and Surgeon of the time was also a charter member.
