Nice to combine a little history while on vacation. Definitely worth a drive by or walk through the fort while in town.

Nice self guided walking tour. There is a book you can carry around and return but it is a bit difficult to follow. The view from the top of the fort is amazing.

Went by to see the fort on our trip to Christiansted. Good sight to see and the cost is inexpensive, but nothing spectacular.

A cost is listed at the entrance, but at the time we were there no one was working! I don't remember how much.

Yes, the story is in the Fort, and there is information also on a wall in the customs building across the street, where the information booth is. Quite an interesting story of young Alexander Hamilton! Much of the story... More
