This is a really cool place to visit. However, it is very sad to see so much of the place deteriorating and I really wish they had the money to preserve things better. Clearly the place cannot continue much longer the way it is... stuff...More

We had a great, educational tour at Fort Wayne. I learned lots about the history of Detroit. Fort Wayne is on the river and is a beautiful place. I knew nothing about Fort Wayne and was very impressed.
