  • It’s a nice place to visit if you want to explore Detroit and its history! I’m pretty sure this place is haunted, if you’re not afraid, go take a look  more »
  • One of the forgotten gems of the city. It is NOT a place people will tell you to go, nor is it an easy find, but it IS one of the few real historical places left in the Detroit area. A fort built in 1...  more »
  • This is a really cool place to visit. However, it is very sad to see so much of the place deteriorating and I really wish they had the money to preserve things better. Clearly the place cannot continu...  more »

  • Beautiful historic property on the riverfront in Detroit. Would love to see a benefactor back the coalition to restore more buildings. Love that volunteers give guided tours.
  • The feeling of history and nostalgia are very strong. The grounds are beautiful although they did allow many of the structures to go by the wayside. Still things to see and learn.
  • This place is awesome! You should take a tour of the Fort and see some history. Once you go through massive concrete walls you come out to a huge area of open grass. You would never believe this place is in the city of Detroit! The Historic Fort Wayne Coalition works very hard to try and preserve the history of the fort and it shows! They have done a great job on preserving some of the buildings! Other buildings are starting to fall down, which is very sad! It is well worth the $5 price for the tour!
  • Pretty nice look back in time. Needs a lot of help. Consider volunteering or donating.
  • Beautiful place, the people who volunteer to keep this place preserved should be commended. They are knowledgeable and give a great reenactment. I wish they could get funding and the help that this historic place deserves.
