There are no actual remains of Fort Mitchell. There is a walking trail around the area where the fort use to stand. We were a bit disappointed. There is no cost to walk the trail. You can check out the site in less than 30...More

Dining at Old Fort Pub is always preceded by our walking tour of the Civil War fort, Fort Mitchel (one L.) Fort Mitchel and other Union forts, together with a superior Union Navy were Key to ultimate Union victory.

Being from NH, it was interesting to see what and how those soldiers entertained themselves. This is a very short walk, but worth the time to visit this site.

Tucked backaways from the main roads, this site has an interesting story, but most of the site has been reclaimed by the earth and/or concreted over to make walking paths for visitors.

Very interesting, sort of hard to find as one has to travel through not one but two gated communities. The second is within the first one. We were the only people there.

Nice place, some signs with history of the fort, how it was built and the purpose. The original cannons are long gone, but they have a few set on concrete to replicate the one's that were there. The short walk and reading the signs takes...More
