On July 12, 2019, the Ticonderoga Historical Society will host a screening of the classic 1941 film Sergeant York at Hancock House!
Members of the York family will also be on hand to discuss Sgt. York's life, legacy, and plans for the Sgt. York Center for Peace and Valor. The Sgt.

Once rennovated, the Sgt. York Center for Peace and Valor would take up residence in the original York Institute constructed by Alvin in the 1920s.
