  • A short distance off Interstate 89 at Springfield, VT/Charlestown, NH exit to a historically accurate reconstruction of a frontier fort from 1740. Very inexpensive entry fees ($8 for 55+ seniors), thi...  read more »
  • Great place to experience history. The Fort regularly puts on events, reenactments and annual dinner. Great place to introduce children to history. 
  • This place is totally not worth the money. We went on a sat afternoon and the parking lot was almost empty. Quite a few of the buildings were locked and couldn't get in to see them. Skip this place. 
  • Stunning Fort! I was thoroughly impressed with the detail & effort it must have taken to erect it. It was breathtaking to experience what life must have been like for the originated inhabitants. The staff were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. The relics & artifacts stored within the fort are also well-worth the visit, to name a few, Native American tools, centuries-old canoe, early western furniture. Yes, we had costumed tour guides, on a non-event day.
  • History buffs will love this place. Small but packed with a ton of history.
  • Be aware that they no longer have costumed tour guides or any demonstrations on non-special event days. We visited on a Friday afternoon and there were no presentations or tours. I was disappointed because obviously walking around empty rooms was not as engaging for my three year old son.
  • This really IS living history. Visiting Fort #4 is as close to time travel as possible. Fascinating.
  • The volunteers put in a lot of work but the site would do better if it was the original fort.
