Staycation: Old Fort Niagara

The edge of Lake Ontario and the Niagara River in northwestern, NY, provided a cultural crossroads.  That prime location made Fort Niagara vital during the French & Indian War, the Revolutionary War, and the War of 1812.

Executive Director Bob Emerson gives us a snapshot of life at Old Fort Niagara and the activities you can witness in the modern age.
