“GREAT FOR ORGANIZED GROUPS”
Review of The Fort at #4

The Fort at #4
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Very interesting and some hands on - we made butter and played with old time toys. Building are rustic and genuine and tour guides very informative. I went with the school as a chaperone and students seemed very engaged - head of the fort could have been a bit more kid friendly but the rest of the staff was great! Not sure how structured it is for people coming in off the street.

Always child friendly and a great learning experience for the young or old about how the early settlers and natives lived their lives.

The Fort suffers from lack of funding and general maintenance. Having said that, it's a great place for children to explore, especially since they can make candles and experience history.

The weekend we visited there was a French & Indian War encampment and an amazing battle reenactment. The air was thick with gunpowder as muskets and cannon fired back and forth between the English and French lines. The Fort itself is an authentic recreation of the original Fort at No.4 dating back to the 1740's. Fascinating, thrilling, and little known American history at its best.

This is an excellent place to take young kids, particularly the 7 to 14 year old group. What a delightful way for them to get a glimpse of life as it was lived in New England during the French and Indian War. It is also a wonderful must visit place for adults. Fort #4 is a beautifully restored fort located on the Connecticut river in Charlestown, NH. The docents are well informed, very patient, generous with their time and with sharing their knowledge.The grounds are beautiful, there are a great number of picnic tables available, the gift shop is well supplied, and the bathrooms are clean. Check out their website and play with their interactive Inside the Fort button before you go to visit and check their listing of activities and programs.
