Very nice memorial built near the Wabash river and within a nice park. Great place to walk around, have a picnic, read some history and take pictures!

Check in at the Visitor Center and watch the 30 minute film so that when you go see the Monument to George Rogers Clark, you can appreciate the extraordinary seven paintings inside the huge building. The paintings are massive, the marble floors are awe inspiring....More

We saw this monument, learned it was part of the National Park Service, had to stop. Learned something we didn't know about this chapter in country's history. Beautifully presented. Please don't miss this jewel

If you're into American history, this is a must stop. The whole town, actually. The NHP is "doable" in 30 minutes or less, but there is a movie (which we didn't see--20 minutes?) which would make your stay longer.

We visited on Three Forts Day, and found many historical interpreters in costume that were eager to chat with us about their role in the history of the place. It made our visit so enjoyable!

Hiding in plain sight in Vincennes Indiana is this memorial on the banks of the Wabash River. Amazing to see this in a area least suspected. If you are close you need to stop in and see this memorial.

Interesting piece of Midwest history. Beautiful grounds and lots of information available inside the memorial building. Don't forget to utilize the audio tour that is available.

The history of George Rogers, I really didn't have a clue. I now know. The structure and the art work of the building is 1st class. The tour is priced right....it's free.

We went for over 2 hours but we used the time to relax. It is worth the trip.
