Old Fort Niagara was once a strategic encampment that controlled access to the Great Lakes and was the setting for some of some of America’s notable revolutionary era battles. It has been 200 years since the fort weathered any armed conflict and 50 years since any service members have been stationed there. Though the fort’s military utility has been exhausted, the proud sentinel of the Niagara River refuses to wave the white flag under the siege of time. The rich 300-year history of the fort lives on as a historical landmark open to the public.
