CAPE VINCENT This week marks the 200th anniversary of the U.S. occupation of Carleton Island and the 18th century Fort Haldimand at the beginning of the War of 1812.
These aerial photos provided by Sothebys, an international realty group that specializes in selling historic homes show the Canadian Tall Ship Fair Jeanne approaching the historic fort, located near the islands head, on Saturday.
The 110-foot ship was built in Ottawa and is operated by Bytown Brigantine Inc., an Ottawa-based youth charity.
The Thousand Islands Land Trust, based in Clayton, owns Carleton Islands seven-acre Revolutionary War site, including the fort, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
Several lots surrounding the fort owned by RH Monks LLC are up for sale and listed with Sothebys.
