Always interested in historical forts so checked this one out. Only a few people there so we had a self tour of the buildings and how they setup the inside as it would have looked back in the day. Very nice visit.

Went at Christmastime to see the Nutcrackers. While there we also did the walking mural tour which was very cool. If you enjoy history then you will enjoy the fort.

This is well worth a visit if you are in the area. Very informative with quite a lot of memorabilia and artefacts on display. The Gentleman is very informative and answers any questions you have and then you can wander around at your own pace.
