  • Off the beaten path, this is a great way to spend an hour or so. Very nice museum with Civil War artifacts and a great walking trail along where many of the original houses sat. Free admission, but do...  more »
  • The newest addition is a cannon found just recently during a dredging operation in the Cape Fear that may have come off a pirate ship! Preliminary dating is estimating it around the early 1700's! Allo...  more »
  • This is a great place if you're into history. The old church is there, cemetery, and foundation remains of old homes.  more »

  • The staff is very knowledgeable and the short museum quite informative. They recommend you watch the fifteen minute video before taking your first tour and I'm so glad I took that recommendation. It definitely helps give you a feel for how the grounds looked before they were mostly excavated foundations. The highlight for me was the walk. The views of the river along that end of the walking path are beautiful and the walk was long enough for my twins to fall asleep in their stroller. Win/Win!
  • The drive up to the fort is great for birders. There is also several locations to see alligators. The fort was great to walk around well
  • Beautifully situated along the Cape Fear River, the sight of both a colonial town and church, Brunswick Town is also important for its location as Fort Anderson where a battle was fought in the Civil War. The area is scenic, and fun to explore with picnic tables and and a visitors center.
  • An interesting view into the past! The staff here are knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to answer questions.
  • Really cool place would have given 5 but there was literally a sign in the ladies room stating they were out of paper towels due to budget cuts. These people need funding!!!!!
