Here are just a few key points that make Fort Montgomery Island Estates a truly unique and powerful investment opportunity :

- World class development with only 8 homesites providing unobstructed and unbelievable wide lake views with unparalleled privacy. Excellent interval ownership opportunities offering a potential substantial return on investment which is conservatively estimated at more than $15 million.

- The Island also includes the remaining portion of the 1800s era Fort Montgomery encompassing thousands of tons of Gray Limestone Blocks ready for your construction or restoration project.

- This limestone originated from the Fisk Quarry located in Isle La Motte, VT which is no longer accessible due to the discovery of one of the world's oldest coral reefs. The Chazy Reef, discovered in this quarry dates back to 450 million years ago.

- Other limestone blocks from this same quarry were utilized in the construction of monumental buildings such as Radio City Music Hall in New York City and the National Gallery of Art located in Washington, D.C.

- The Fisk Quarry limestone when smoothed and polished gives a black or nearly black surface and for many years was sold as 'Black' or 'Fisk Black' Marble which has an appearance that is impossible to imitate. Limestone symbolizes style, prestige, and a respect for history that is often missing in the modern world.

- The property is accessible by land, water, or railroad should the buyer choose to dismantle and extract the finished Limestone Blocks.
