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!

They are in process of needed repairs. It was in very sad shape!! Why did the town permit it to deteriorate as it did. The other historical buildings such as the Military Hospital is going to rack and ruin!
