  • Very fine historical site.
  • I love that you can go there and learn more about the details and history of what went on during the war of 1812 and how the French Revolution and American people survived
  • A really cool fort. Everyone was friendly, and enjoyed their work. It showed.
  • Wonderful history and views from up here. Amazing when you picture this spot being the frontier of the whole New World and European armies were clashing on the shores of Lake Ontario for control of it all. This place is now restored to how it looked around 1860-70.
  • It was a few years ago around Halloween it was amazing educational love to come back
