  • The military base has plenty of history monuments. The base also has a sactuary for Bald Eagles and it is a beautiful site to see. They fly all around the base. A must see if you are in the area. Down town is also less than a mile from the entrance with plenty of bars and restaurants.
  • Museum is amazing! A must check out if you're in the area, or even if you're not. There is some way awesome history in this place!
  • Lots of military history in this place. Takes some time to be granted access but worth the effort. I was here 18 years ago.and it was even better this time. Again worth a visit if you can spare a few hours.
  • Very interesting museum. Lots of small arms to check out.
  • Very polite employees and volunteers. Interesting place to visit for history.
