  • Enjoyed visiting this historic Fort used primarily during the American Revolution but also has ties to the US war on southern Americans (aka Civil War). The grounds were well maintained and I also liked the gift shop and displays inside the building. In particular, it has a great collection of period flags. Also glad to have seen the nearby Sunbury Cemetery that was established with the town in 1758. Many were buried in the cemetery in the 1700s, 1800s, and 1900s. The earliest marked grave is dated 1788 and the most recent grave is dated 1911. Many graves are missing tombstones.
  • Had a great time and this park is beautiful and I highly recommend it!
