More about this marker. The Plattsburgh Institute (founded by Dr. David Kellogg to preserve local history) dedicated the marker on September 22, 1894. About 600 people attended the ceremony, including descendants and survivors of the invasion. The monument was relocated to widen the road in the 1930s, and was largely forgotten until the approaching War of 1812 bicentennial caused it to be "rediscovered." In 2007, the New York Department of Transportation, the Town of Beekmantown, and the Beekmantown Lions Club worked together to create the new Culver Hill Historic Park. The monument and the new park were officially dedicated in 2009.
