I visited because an ancestor of mine helped build Ft. Laurens. The location was lovely, and the information provided was very interesting, but not overwhelming. They perfect setting for a picnic, and gaining an understanding of a less understood piece of the Revolutionary War.

We visited as I am very interested in history and this is the only Revolutionary War Fort in Ohio. The video, a bit out of focus, was interesting and the small museum has some interesting artifacts. The docent could answer all of our questions and...More
