Made a special trip to see the fort. There is a lot of construction due to a storm. After repaired it should be great. Wait until they get done!

I think we must have visited after a big storm. Many of the barracks were undergoing roof repairs. We enjoyed some good photo ops, but there isn't much to do other than walk around right now. Still a good, free atttaction.

Enjoyed the fort and seeing the restoration. Kids liked the displays, jail (munitions), and stocks. Great place to burn some energy when traveling with kids!
