Truly amazing place to visit. Be sure you take the guided tour, it’s free and the information was wonderful. After the tour go to the roof and the around the fort. You will see and hear some pretty amazing things.

Unscheduled visit, was very enjoyable. We did not do the guided tour, but the park ranger was available and very knowledgeable to answer our questions. I think we would have loved to have done the tour had time permitted.
