Towns > Fort Ann

Fort Ann, NY

The small town of Fort Ann is rich with history, and was the site of a turning point in the Revolutionary War: the Battle of Fort Anne. This conflict on July 7 and 8, 1777 helped to delay General John Burgoyne's arrival in Saratoga, which ultimately led to his defeat. A plaque commemorating the event can be seen along Route 4.


Today, Fort Ann is a farming town, and contains many well-preserved, historic homes and buildings. The combined population of the Town and Village of Fort Ann is approximately 7,000.

Some of the primary attractions in the area include a craft brewery, a mini golf course and ice cream parlor, and a historic library. Sleeping Beauty Mountain, the Pilot Knob Preserve, and Stewarts Ledge are also nearby, and offer great hiking opportunities with spectacular views.

Fort Ann's downtown is located just 15 minutes from Lake George's famed outlet malls, meaning there's always something to do, rain or shine.
