While in the area visiting Niagara Falls we decided to take the dogs for a walk at Old Fort Niagara. Originally built by the French, taken over by the British, and then held by the US. We were pleasantly surprised by the condition of the buildings in the fort. It’s well worth the price of admission.

Overview of the fort

The original fort was built by the French in 1726. The masonry and woodwork are impressive.

Overall a great way to spend a few hours checking out history.
