Archaeologist Dr. David Starbuck spent decades working on Rogers Island, Fort Edward and other related archaeological sites. His excavations and research form an integral part of our knowledge of the area’s prehistoric and historic inhabitants. Learn more about Dr. Starbuck and his local archaeological contributions.

Robert Rogers forever changed military tactics when he wrote his “Ranging Rules” while encamped on the island. As a result the U. S. Army Rangers consider the Rogers Island to be their “spiritual birthplace”. Learn more about Rogers Rangers and their important role in military history.
