Overview
More
Minutes from Center City, Fort Mifflin is one of the country's only completely intact Revolutionary War battlefields. Site of the greatest bombardment of the American Revolution, the Fort was reconstructed beginning in the late 18th century and in use until decommissioning in 1954. Fort Mifflin answered every call to service: garrisoned for the War of 1812, a federal prison during the Civil War and a munitions depot in the 20th century. Living history events including tactical battle demonstrations and interactive activities bring the Fort's incredible term of service to life. Riverfront picnic area, nature trail. Scout camping, paranormal investigations and programs, school and group tours year-round!

This fort had 2 cool things I’ve never seen at other forts (no spoilers, so not listing them). Worth the trip if you’re in Philly. But the place could use some upkeep, and the sole dude manning the office wasn’t inspiring. He had no response...More

Fort Mifflin played an important roll in the history of the American Revolution. It was instrumental in slowing the British advance to Philadelphia, allowing Washington's army time to arrive safely at Valley Forge for the winter. The four of us adults visiting were fortunate enough...More

There is a lot of history here, starting with the Revolutionary War. This fort has been used for a long time, and I think it is still being used by the Corps of Engineers. This is not a huge place and you can see it...More
