Very interesting fort. Due to the geographical area and design of fort, it was never attacked. Beautiful view of Christiansted harbor. Good parking. Easy access to the wharf area, restaurants, and bars.

This is such a beautiful place and I learned something new. Alexander Hamilton lived here when he was a boy.

Well worth the entrance fee to tour the old fort. The views out to the harbor and town are great. This is a self guided tour.

Yes, the story is in the Fort, and there is information also on a wall in the customs building across the street, where the information booth is. Quite an interesting story of young Alexander Hamilton! Much of the story... More
