This is a rebuilt fort that has many historical artifacts located throughout the area. Do not miss the osage orange tree. It is a good place to have a family picnic.

The fort was waling distance from the Beaumont Inn. It was a restored fort with well informed and interesting re-creators as blacksmiths, gunsmiths, weavers, etc. They knew their history and enjoyed sharing it. Even the gift shop had some interesting KY made crafts

The Pioneer Festival is always fun. There are lots of booths and crafts. Of course lots of food that isn't good for you but that is so good.
