  • Great Pokémon Poké stop and Gyms.
  • Small museum with some interesting artifacts. Only a small portion of the original fort remains but it has been restored nicely. If your in the area, stop by. The park surrounding the fort is nice, large, and well maintained.
  • Awesome place to jog with plenty of room to run and see historic war artifacts, not to mention the many Pokéstops!
  • Very nice little museum. The grounds are also in great shape. Will definitely consider returning to walk the paths and/or cookout.
  • This is really a neat little gem - you can drive around the loop, but most people use the loop for walking/running. There is a playground in the park, and there are several historical markers. The museum is definitely worth a visit! There are several other amenities scattered throughout.
