We recently moved to the Ft Mitchell area and only found out about this historic site by driving by it. We really enjoyed the reconstructed fort and the Native American monument. The museum was just ok. It's possible to drive to each of the little attractions if the heat makes walking seem unappealing.

There is a 20 or so minute film about Ft. Michell that seemed to me to contain a lot of extraneous information. You can walk through depictions of historic events that occurred there, then leave the main building and see an old family graveyard, a carriage house with many restored period horse-drawn carriages, and a reconstruction of the fort, itself,...

This is one of the few forts that have been practically fully reconstructed! There are some places you can walk, a nice little museum and 20 min film. Reconstruction of carriages, taverns, trading post houses, and a fort tower you can go in. I also heard that they do smith working every now and then to show how its done.... More

They have a nice museum, old homes, cemetery, horses, and exhibits. I would recommend going here to explore what the area used to be.

My friend and I were delighted to see the recent expansion of this park. They have added a small museum, welcome center, and living history section complete with a replica of a small encampment. We thoroughly enjoyed the nature, friendly cats at the camp, and walking areas. I will say that the Native American monument is in need of a... More

Little out of the way. Not too much to see but worth going to support what they are doing.

Very interested in local southern history, my husband & I took this short trip to Fort Mitchell expecting only to find a monument to Indian History. Pleasantly surprised, we found much more. Upon entering the site, we stopped at The Visitor's Center which houses a museum featuring "walk through time" displays depicting lifelike historical scenes, artifacts and a short film... More
