There is a 20 or so minute film about Ft. Michell that seemed to me to contain a lot of extraneous information. You can walk through depictions of historic events that occurred there, then leave the main building and see an old family graveyard, a carriage house with many restored period horse-drawn carriages, and a reconstruction of the fort, itself,...

They have a nice museum, old homes, cemetery, horses, and exhibits. I would recommend going here to explore what the area used to be.

Little out of the way. Not too much to see but worth going to support what they are doing.

Very interested in local southern history, my husband & I took this short trip to Fort Mitchell expecting only to find a monument to Indian History. Pleasantly surprised, we found much more. Upon entering the site, we stopped at The Visitor's Center which houses a museum featuring "walk through time" displays depicting lifelike historical scenes, artifacts and a short film... More
