The kids loved playing in the fort and could have stayed for hours more. It was a great look into the past!

Full Scale Replica of Fort Hall based upon archaeology and documents. Exhibits on both floors of log structures. Corner Lookouts are not open to public. See also the excellent History Museum next door. The pint-sized town between the two did not attract our attention ......More
