This fort played a vital role in several wars that have taken place on American soil and is now a place visitors can come learn about the history firsthand.

Old Fort Niagara is somewhere that offers fascinating history while being surrounded by gorgeous waterfront surroundings. Located in Youngstown, New York, Old Fort Niagara dates back 300 years. The fort played an important role during the colonial wars in North America since it was situated at the mouth of the Niagara River and regulated access to the Great Lakes. It also served as barracks and a training station during both the World Wars. The fort was restored in the early 1930s and is now operated by the state as a non-profit organization so the public can see and learn about this significant piece of history.

Everyone who pays a visit to Old Fort Niagara will undoubtedly learn invaluable information while here. The fort has one of the best collections of authentic 18th and 19th-century military artifacts. You also can’t miss out on the historic lighthouse on the grounds, which was built in 1872 and overlooks the beautiful grounds as well as Lake Ontario. The fort’s website also has a webcam live stream from the lighthouse that allows you to see the unmatched sunsets this area gets if you can’t make the trip out. The fort is open every day from 10 to 5, and admission costs $17 for adults, $12 for children (6-12), and free for children 5 and under. Step back in time and learn about this integral piece of American history at Old Fort Niagara!
