The Ticonderoga Historical Society opens its third exhibit of the 2016 season this Friday, May 6, at 6:30 pm at the Hancock House. “From the Adirondacks to the Arctic” examines the life of local resident Floyd Bennett, who piloted Admiral Richard E. Byrd on his controversial and historic 1926 flight over the North Pole.
Also included in the exhibit is a broader discussion of local connections to exploration, including the USS Ticonderoga’s (CVS14) role in spacecraft recovery. The ship participated in the Apollo 16 and 17 and Skylab programs during the early 1970s.
The program is free and the public is invited to attend. No RSVP is necessary, seating is limited. Refreshments will be served.
