Easy access from the freeway. Small museum. The video was about 20 minutes long and outdated but worth seeing to get the background history of the area. The museum had various items found during excavation. It was interesting to read about the history of the items. Outside there are several points detailing points marked from the fort's perimeter. I was... 更多
If your a history buff this place is worth checking out. We have done it once and that was plenty. Not a lot to see but if you want to spend an afternoon here there is a great picnic area and the towpath trail connects here for great bicycling and walking activities.

We weren't sure what to expect. I had read about the museum that was there and the outline of the fort. Well, we went on a Tuesday and even I was shocked of the lack of anything there. There is an outline of where the fort stood, which I think was nice, however, it would behoove them to actually put... 更多
