Carleton Island near Cape Vincent

Carleton Island near Cape Vincent is a lost treasure in the Thousand Islands rich in history with ruins still remaining from Fort Haldimand, controlled by the British during the American Revolution. Some of the largest warships were built here during that time. Long-vacant Carleton Villa was built here in 1894 by William O. Wyckoff, who made his fortune marketing Remington typewriters.
