  • Not much here. Glad they preserved this much, but it isn't much of a stop. Literally part of a city block with a monument and a few cannons. Way to miss it you are not careful
  • The National Parks has done little if any oversight of this small piece of our nations story. There is much that could be done to improve the site as the information signs have been removed. All that protects this site are a few cannons, markers, and a small tree line to the rear. With the hustle and bustle of the busy streets and businesses around, it is too easy to drive by almost missing it.
