Description 

TICONDEROGA, considered to be the only extant unmodified vessel of its type in the United States, symbolizes an era of travel that has all but vanished from American waters. One of only two remaining "walking-beam" marine steam engines remaining in the U.S., TICONDEROGA plied the waters of Lake Champlain carrying day passengers, excursion groups and freight from 1906 through 1953. Now located several miles inland at the Shelburne Museum, this steel vessel was the last coal-powered ship in service on the lake and remains essential unchanged. -- Historic American Engineering Record (HAER VT-14)
