The steamboat Ticonderoga is America’s last remaining side-paddle-wheel passenger steamer with a vertical beam engine of the type that provided freight and passenger service on America’s lakes and rivers from the early 19th to the mid-20th centuries. Commissioned by the Champlain Transportation Company, Ticonderoga was built at the Shelburne Shipyard in Shelburne, Vermont on Lake Champlain, and is now preserved at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont.
