This is a great National Monument with a large area to walk around. We first looked around the nice Visitor Center and watched the movie, then walked Broad Street to the fort. There are many informational signs along the "streets" of the old town, about the different buildings that used to stand there. It was great to learn about the history of this place and we enjoyed our visit here very much.
This free historical park is absolutely wonder to explore. The history is fascinating to learn and liked the 22 minute movie that gave a great overview. We walked the entire area exploring and found some additional trails to walk.
