Fantastic a whole lot of history packed in this historic site. And if ghost tales are your thing look those up before you go. View was amazing. 191 feet above sea level at the top. Worth the admission, well worth the stop.
Great place to visit, wonderful and friendly volunteer staff. The climb to the top was well worth the view. Ground were well kept and informative stations were placed throughout. And special mention goes out to Volunteer Cheryl, she took time to visit with us. We really enjoyed our visit.
