We visited the fort an July 9th, 2009. The new visitors center, which unfortunately is not on Google Earth, is excellent and very informative. This fort should be a must-visit-once-a-lifetime-place for all Americans, to appreciate where freedom came from. Every tax dollar spent is well spent. I have to applause to the volunteers, a former army man, dressing up like an American regular soldier and (I believe it was his wife) as lady from back then. We had a great discussion with my dear friend David Patterson from Syracuse and the soldier and I think I even got him a little bit impressed by my knowledge of the Revolutionary War and the fort for a European. Even my wife and 14 year old daughter were impressed. I was emotionally impressed with the fort. Great work!
My kids earned their first Junior Ranger badge here, while I was scouting the location for a Staff Ride. The staff was very helpful and they where dotted throughout the indoor and outdoor exhibits. While the Fort might be small, the importance of what happened here helped allowed the American victory at Saragota. Allow for at least 2 hours here, more if you want to get a truly full experience. Best to visit it between the spring and fall.
We arrived after the visitor center and monument were closed, but took advantage of the cell phone walking tour. You dial in on your phone and enter the number of your stop on the (flat) trail, which gives you a little blurb about what youre looking at, etc. My kids really enjoyed it because we have been learning about these battles recently. Easy walk, and I enjoyed the convenience and ease is the cell phone tour. It was free.
This fort is smaller than others Ive been but it is inland so it would only have to withstand land armies & weaponry. Fort Stanwix was rediscovered & rebuilt in the 1970s so this is a recreation. Its well built but *ALLERGEN ALERT* smells moldy in the bombproofs & some rooms. The volunteers around the fort are knowledgeable & enjoyable, especially a ponytailed guy in the general store (wish I remembered his name!).
One of my favorite places to go in Rome. Lots of community events throughout the year and nice tours and well educated and informed park rangers and volunteers. I myself volunteer in the army for demonstrations. Its the best place local to relive the history of the development of Central NY to what it is today.
Very nice national park. Well-maintained. It looks great. Clean bathrooms. Plenty of parking and street parking. Great gift shop. Junior Ranger program for the kids. Check the website because their reenactment events are a lot of fun! The videos and interactive aspects of the museum were superb!
Nice historic site, very knowledgeable and friendly staff. My Dad and I used to hit lots of places like this when I was a kid and this talks up there in quality along side many of the larger and more will known ones. A hidden and forgotten gem amongst revolutionary war sites.
To explain quickly and not In a boring way its very interesting and educational with a little humor here and there making it a lot of fun (be warned dont "ease" yourself where your not supposed to, youll get this reference if you find the sign about the neccessaries)
Was set up better than most forts weve seen and the price was right. Free. Very educational. Parking was non- existent Street parking only. But then thats free also. Hard to find the actual entrance. But we loved the details.
Its something that they make you go to for your second grade fieldtrips and that you never go back to again. Its boring and not even on the real location of the original Fort Stanwix. Its just an idea Rome had to increase tourism.
Incredible fort, you can really feel what it must have been like to live like a soldier in the Revolutionary war. Very realistic. The kids loved this place. We go every year here.
Kids love it, especially my 4 year old who got to help show how to fire a cannon. He was the "powder monkey". I enjoy how much it has grown since I volunteered there ages ago.
Engaging, informative staff and well maintained grounds and buildings make this a nice stop when you want to show your kids the history of the local area.
Really nice area to visit for a few hours. Great look at history of the area. Its a shame the fort is a recreation on an alternate site from the original.
A neat little excursion to break up a day of driving between locations. Fun and informative and you could be through it in as little as an hour.
Pretty cool place. Lots of history. Staff is very friendly and tell you a lot of history without having to ask or be on a guided tour.
I love that we have this right in our own backyard! Everyone who works there is friendly and knowledgeable. Great experience for all!
Theres a lot of local history here, and the city uses the lawn for great family summer events. Plus there are a lot of Pokéstops.
Fort is in the middle of the city and a complete rebuild on the old foundation. They did a great job with recreating the fort.
Free!!!! Awesome fort with people dressed in historical attire showing how thing were done back in the revolutionary war days.
Great place to learn about history. Park Rangers and volunteers dress up, act and speak like the early settlers.
Very informative and interesting visitors center, and the staff is very friendly and helpful in every way
