The fort is a nice, well maintained recreation of the actual Fort at Number 4. The admission is reasonable ($10), and the tour guide very knowledgeable. The woman that runs the place is very condescending and somewhat demeaning, which somewhat spoils the visit.

The original fort housed several families of early settlers. This community-run exhibit gives a good...More

Great place to experience history. The Fort regularly puts on events, reenactments and annual dinner. Great place to introduce children to history.

This place is totally not worth the money. We went on a sat afternoon and the parking lot was almost empty. Quite a few of the buildings were locked and couldn't get in to see them. Skip this place.

Plenty of good history information, even more if the re-enactors are on site. This is a self-guided replica but you will occasionally get re-enactors on-site.

It is neat to walk through New England History and people are friendly and have a wealth of knowledge about the time period. Call if you are looking to see a reenactment since they have certain days for that. Take the time to visit the...More

Decided to take in a little history and that day I picked the Old Fort at #4 since it was next to the Connecticut River and I wanted to go to the Vermont Country store after. Very friendly people and a great day to explore....More
