Fort Plain Museum And Historical Park

389 Canal Street
Fort Plain, NY 13339

The Fort Plain Museum is chartered under the Board of Regents as a 501C3 not for profit entity. The charter was originally granted in 1963. The museum's purpose was to highlight Revolutionary War Fort Plain and educate the public on the fort's contribution to protecting the Mohawk Valley during the struggle for American independence. Today the Fort Plain Museum & Historical Park is expanding its facilities and developing the historic acreage it now owns. In 2004 the museum completed a new building program, a reproduction of the Revolutionary War home of Johannes Lipe. The Lipe family originally owned the property on which stood Revolutionary War Fort Plain. It is planned that the new building will display our collection of Revolutionary War artifacts recovered from the site and simultaneously tell the story of the war in the Mohawk Valley.
