  • Lots of amazing history here. Beautiful pictures. One of the buildings is an original form the early 1700s. It’s a beautiful well preserved piece of history.

  • Authentic historic site. Unfortunately only 1-2 buildings remain and the rest is just grass. The museum is however quite nice.

  • I was fortunate enough to grow up nearby Fort Anne. It's a beautiful historical site to visit. The grounds are well kept, the view is fabulous, the fort itself is stunning inside and out, and the staff are wonderful. I highly recommend a visit.
  • Well kept grounds, clean bathrooms
