  • I was lucky to join the living history weekend at Ft. Madison this past weekend. I had a wonderful time meeting the volunteers and the staff. I loved the buildings and the windows. I volunteer at Ft. Atkinson SHP located near Omaha, NE and we do not have nearly as much light in the barrack rooms. I have to admit listening to the trains during the night and the mosquitoes were not so pleasant. Thank you for making me feel welcome. I would like to return in the future.
  • The staff here was wonderful and their knowledge of the fort history was truly impressive. Make sure you ask if they are giving demonstrations of a musket being fired when you come! Very cool!
  • Fort not open yet but we walked around and peeked through the log fencing hopefully we will be able to make a return trip soon and will be able to get a look inside.
  • It's my home
  • Awesome
