Come visit this one of a kind National Park in downtown Rome, NY! For thousands of years the ancient trail that connects the Mohawk River and Wood Creek served as a vital link for those traveling between the Atlantic Ocean and Lake Ontario. This well-worn route through Oneida Indian territory carried goods and news, as well as diseases, to others far away. When Europeans arrived, they named this trail the Oneida Carrying Place and inaugurated a significant period in American history in which Fort Stanwix would play a vital role.

  • This location is absolutely beautiful and filled with fascinating artifacts. The presentation of the history of the fort is done from multiple perspectives, giving a more complete understanding of the political, social, and economic motivations and climate at the time. The replication of the fort itself is simply amazing! Every turn has something new to explore, and it's very easy to imagine life there during its existence. It's a small enough location for an educational family outing, and the videos, artifacts, and knowledgeable rangers and volunteers will easily keep children interested and engaged. I strongly recommend alotting at least an hour to properly take in the visitors center and the fort itself.
  • Loved visiting this place. I actually stopped here on my road trip from Toronto to Boston to meet up with a friend who is reconstructing the place. The employees were so nice and informative. Its also almost the half way point from Toronto to Boston if you’re on I-90
