  • Very impressed with the fort. There were people dressed in period costumes that were very informative. They even shot off cannons! There were a number of buildings still standing to tour. It was a great spot to visit if you enjoy learning about our history
  • Loved the hardy construction of the last standing original building. This place made it easy to imagine the daily hardship of the frontier days. Wonderfully helpful volunteers and staff. Very knowledgeable about the site and local history.
