  • Fort Stanwix was built in 1758 Vauban star-shaped. Fort Stanwix served during the war of independence of the United States, and was rebuilt in the 1970s by the National Park Service. Once the visit is well made: a drop-in centre which tells the story of the fort and its role in the war of independence, a short film (in English). Then you can enter the fort rebuilt, visit the barracks, and ask questions of staff time required to better understand the daily life of the fort.

  • This fort is smaller than others I've been but it is inland so it would only have to withstand land armies & weaponry. Fort Stanwix was rediscovered & rebuilt in the 1970s so this is a recreation. It's well built but *ALLERGEN ALERT* smells moldy in the bombproofs & some rooms. The volunteers around the fort are knowledgeable & enjoyable, especially a ponytailed guy in the general store (wish I remembered his name!).
  • One of my favorite places to go in Rome. Lots of community events throughout the year and nice tours and well educated and informed park rangers and volunteers. I myself volunteer in the army for demonstrations. It's the best place local to relive the history of the development of Central NY to what it is today.
  • Great recreated fort of the American Revolution. Well worth a visit if you are in the Rome area.
  • This place is pretty neat. You dont see forts made from wood
  • Nice historic site, very knowledgeable and friendly staff. My Dad and I used to hit lots of places like this when I was a kid and this talks up there in quality along side many of the larger and more will known ones. A hidden and forgotten gem amongst revolutionary war sites.
