  • It was a very interesting visit with lots of history and many interesting pictures and artifacts. I would recommend it for young and old. The staff are pleasant and very imformative.  more »
  • Worth the visit...it was free to get in due to the 150th Birthday Celebration. Beautiful buildings and engaging activities throughout. There is even a little cafe with decent food and a beer!  more »
  • Best to go in summer when people are dressed in period costumes and work the trades like a cooperage, blacksmith shop etc.  more »

  • A beautiful piece of history! We visited during the afternoon of July 30, 2017. The building and grounds are well maintained with good information easy to find. The staff are friendly and helpful. On warm summer day, an outdoor patio, or beer garden would be great! There's a restaurant in one of the historical buildings, but it was quite full and on a warm day, I'd rather be outside.
  • I absolutely adore this place! My first visit to a real fort. Tons of history to be found here and it's maintained very well! Staff are dressed in appropriate historical attires and are knowledgeable. Don't miss out the orientation walk.
  • We took part in the 9 o'clock Grave tales tour and very pleased with the presentation, the history and the vast area the tour covers. You visit the town hall, the cemetery, and several other significant stops before returning to the fort to hear the last of the tales. I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in history and or the paranormal. Bring good walking shoes.
  • Really amazing historical site to visit. Fun for the whole family and interactive tours make it extremely engaging and insightful. Thank you!
  • Cool place to see with various reenactors who all seemed to be very knowledgeable. I would go again, it's great for families and couples. There is also neat things to buy.
