The first spades full of dirt for the Erie Canal were turned in Rome and a short span of the original canal still remains that can be visited.

The Fort is outfitted with guides in period costume who share information with you about life in the 1700's. History abounds in the region and down the road a short distance is the Oriskany Battlefield that saw one of the bloodiest battles of the Revolution when American patriots under General Nicholas Herkimer were ambushed on their way to relieve the siege at Fort Stanwix.
