This is a great stop for history buffs. Right close to town with lots of parking yet very peaceful. I can't comment on the inside as it was closed so check the hours befor you visit. Lots to see from the outside.

The hiking trails are well maintained and marked. The info center has a great film about the Revolutionary war encampment. There are reinactors most days in the buildings. Worth the visit.
