  • A very well kept relic of military life on the frontier. Lots of things to take pictures of. The museum also has interesting pictures not too often found else where. And they roads in the area are stunning.
  • Wow. Hard to believe something so cool is hidden out here. It's a little run down, but that makes it feel more authentic like you are taking a step back into history. I could picture people milling around the parade field and surrounding buildings.
  • You absolutely can't pass this place up. The history is amazing and this place is amazingly beautiful and historic. The renovations are being done well. Highly recommend!
  • Lots of history here, good reenactments, going through and seeing the barracks and old hospital. It's all very interesting and everyone was very friendly.
  • Great museum lot of history wonderful reenactments in the Civil War and second World War would definitely go back again when I'm in the area
