The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on January 25, 1971 and listed as a National Historic Landmark on November 28, 1972, for its significance in military history.

  • Staff was helpful and informative, answering all of our questions. We were very impressed by the historical accuracy of everything, including making clothing and shoes on site. Don't miss the musket demonstration! (It's about way more than just the muskets.)
  • When we went it was cold outside. Only my daughter and myself showed up. The staff stiff did the entire tour and reenactments. The poor woodworker built a stool in 30 degree weather! He also made all the costumes as his tailoring shop was closed for covid.if I had money I would seriously donate to them. It was amazing.
