Fort Covington-Dundee is a border crossing connecting Sainte-Agnès-de-Dundee, Quebec in Canada to Fort Covington, New York. The crossing is notable because the boundary line crosses through the now-defunct Taillon's International Hotel, where it was possible to order a drink in Canada and play pool in the United States. The hotel was built in 1820,[1] prior to the Webster–Ashburton Treaty of 1842, which redefined this section of the Canada–United States border.
