Fort Stanwix National Monument

112 East Park Street

For centuries, the Oneida Carrying Place, a six mile portage connecting the Mohawk River and Wood Creek, served as a vital link for those traveling by water from the ocean to the Great Lakes. When Europeans arrived, nations fought for control of the carry, the homelands of the Six Nations Confederacy, and the rich resources of North America. In this struggle, Fort Stanwix would play a vital role.

Super informative. Lots of videos and interactive media combined with large Museum. The reconstructed for is really awesome. Park employees and volunteers dressed in traditional clothing made it a special treat. Extremely well done! Are 11 and 13 year old loved it. We stayed for 3 hours and could have easily stayed another 3.

This is a great place to learn some history of the American Revolution. The fort is a reconstruction on the original site and give a great view of how the Colonial Army used the fort to change part of the war. The interpretive guides at the Fort explain not only how the Fort was used to fend off the British soldiers but also what life was like I mob the Fort. They did have a demonstration of how the cannons were readied and fired. Also how they were used to defend the fort. Well worth a stop here if you have a couple of hours.

Good reproduction of the fort including the inside buildings. Persons dressed in period garb explained the fort. Several videos in the visitor's center and in the fort gave a good history of the fort before and during the Revolutionary War.
