Owner description: Davidson's Fort was built in 1776 by North Carolina Militia soldiers for the defense of settlers against the Cherokees. How is Davidson's Fort Historic Park supported today? Davidson's Fort is owned and operated by a nonprofit organization, Davidson's Fort Historic Park, Inc. Its oversight lies with the Board of Directors, the members of which serve as volunteer staff and have been responsible for a great deal of the work done to build the site. Davidson's Fort is funded entirely by private funds from grants and donations; it receives no state or federal funding. We are pleased to inform the public that a Docent will be at Davidson's Fort on Saturdays from 9am to noon to give information about our history. Each third Saturday a Colonial Living History will be presented with hands on demonstrations of the 18th Century. This event will have a gate admission of $2.00 per person 6 and older. Major events will be presented 4 times a year, please see our Web Site for more detail. As always the fort is available for viewing and photographing 7 days a week. For group tours or to book the Fort for your special event please contact us through Face Book Davidson's Fort Historic Park

Very true to the time period, The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), we enjoyed all the re-enactors they were very informative and jovial. The Fort was amazing, fire in the hole was exciting made the ground tremble. For a small fee, you can take a trip back in history. We're planning on another visit soon; this is a hidden jewel!.

Thank you so much for your nice review. Davidson's Fort is a non-profit organization and really like to meet our guest and hear their reviews. Noticing the review you attended out Rev War Days it was such a hot weekend but we loved to greet our visitors and talk with them about the era. Thank you for visiting.
