History and Area of Responsibility
The original Border Patrol Station in this area was established at Rouses Point, New York, July 1, 1924, with a complement of three officers. The original area of responsibility was Grand Isle County, Vermont; Clinton County, New York, and the portion of Franklin County, New York, east of Fort Covington. No specific depth of the area was set forth; however, where necessary, officers worked as far as 100 miles south of the border. During this early period, stations were also established at Chestertown, Ticonderoga, Chateaugay, and Mooers, New York, with a complement of two or three officers each. With the closing of the other Border Patrol stations, disbanding of the Customs Patrol, and the rise in international travel, the officer strength has steadily increased.

October 18, 1989, the station moved into a new building located on the Ridge Road in Champlain, NY, adjacent to I-87, and two miles south of the port of entry at Champlain. The station name was changed to Champlain to reflect the new location.
