Fantasy Kingdom and St. Armand’s Beach
Once upon a time, during the era of family theme parks in the late 1950s, Point Au Roche was home to an enchanted village known as Fantasy Kingdom. As the small-scale railroad carried its passengers onto a bluff just south of the Giant’s Castle, one could look down at the very popular and crowded, naturally sandy St. Armand’s Beach.
On August 5, 2021, at 7:00 PM, the Bicentennial Committee of the Town of Beekmantown will present Fantasy Kingdom and St. Armand’s Beach. Alice Sample, a retired educator, will tell the story of these two centers of fun and recreation that are no longer. The event will take place at the Beekmantown Town Hall, 571 Spellman Road, West Chazy, NY 12992. It is open to the public free of charge. CDC guidelines regarding masks and social distancing will be followed.
Co-Sponsored by the Town of Beekmantown Bicentennial Committee, The Clinton County Historical Association, and Friends of Point Au Roche State Park.
