  • My mom, husband, and I enjoyed this place so much. The views were incredible at the top. The artwork was moving.
  • Old and run down jist like a fort from the 1700's should be. Cost $5 to roam around or free to take pictures from the ground level like we did. Town and landscaping around it is very scenic and taken care of.
