Although not the original fort, this replica is is very interesting. The guide we had was very knowledgeable about local history in general and 1800 military life in particular. Lots of actual items..... more »
It is right in the Mississippi River so the view is breathtaking. There is a lovely walking path along the Waters edge and an old fort where they do re- enactments which re fun for the kids. The town is very friendly and quiet. It is a great place to relax, unwind, and just enjoy a bit of tranquility.
I loved the place. It is not a free museum. But we we offered a discount. The folks who work there dress is period clothes and talk with you in character, in the first person. It adds so much depth to the experience. They extremely knowledgeable as well.
