We enjoyed walking through the fort, seeing the actors and touching a bit of history. Showing a real place to my grandchildren to explain how people lived was a great experience.

I enjoy the history of this and always check it out when I come to town. Easy walk and nice trip back in time

The buildings are neat if not boring when there is no event going on. Great place to go if you're into Pokemon Go.

Was a nice stroll through the fort, unfortunately we missed the re enactment by a couple of weeks. The history was interesting

Built in 2004, it's just a replica but still interesting. It was built from the plans of an actual 1800's fort that had been burned down.

This is a small old fort, nicely restored and easily accessible in the center of town, but go on a weekend when they have a re-enactment, otherwise it may be disappointing. During the monthly reenactment, there are folks who dress and live in period costume...More
