Now that the Fort is open for the season, visitors have an opportunity to see the many 18th century tools and equipment and items of daily living that are displayed in the buildings. Some are recognizable but others - such as the schnitzelbanc and sugar nipper - are not commonly used today. Self-guided tours are available daily but if you call ahead we can schedule an experienced guide to tell the stories behind the exhibits and of the men who served here over 230 years ago. A tour of the fort is a reminder of what earlier generations endured before the advances of modern medicine and technology. Come and see how we are "Keeping History Alive!"
