  • Pretty amazing standing on the soil of so much history! They left remnants of their life they had lived at the fort, from buildings, canons, wagons and even garden plants of watermelon, grapes and squash! It’s an honor to get to visit and be thankful for what we have now!
  • Its a nice historical place that is well kept. There are bathrooms onsite that are nice for being outdoors. There is not a whole lot to look at but if you enjoy history it is a nice place to visit.
