We arrived while several school buses of kids were at the fort. We were able to eavesdrop on their several stations and learning experiences. Fort staff are very helpful and really interesting to listen to.

Visited this attraction during off season. Even though the exhibit was closed it was cool to see the building construction of the log houses and fort walls/stanchions. Great outdoor experience.

I visited on a hot hot day. The fort is small, especially when compared to Ligonier. For a small tour and to see historic artifacts, it was good. I bet it is better when it comes to life during a festival.
