Driving by one might thing there’s not much to this place. But the grounds and “museum” is very well kept, and full of great information!! If you are interested in history, don’t leave this out! It’s the foundation of Monroe’s history. It may be a...More
We rarely miss an NPS site during our travels, and I decided to detour while on a solo jaunt to hit River Raisin. The visitor center movies - about the battle itself and about Commodore Perry - were well done, provoking good context and backcourts...More
