We visited the fort in early July and I must say, this is an awesome site!!! History seems to come alive at the place. Artifacts galore and a replicated fort with a moat and everything! You could actually look to the skyline of the mountains and hear the echo's of the cannon's. The museum is really informative with tons of exhibits! I think this fort is overlooked too often by people and taken for granted! I learned so much! and I cant wait to go back for the re-enactment days!!! This is definitely a fort to see before you die AND bring all the kids you can because they will enjoy it just as much!!!
