not all those who wander are lost

The Enlisted Men’s Barracks, 1894

Stables – there are several of these structures around the compound.

Stair cases in front of the Powder Magazine building.

Here are a few interesting historic bricks, sitting next to one of the new door structures being built, as discussed in the last thread. I didn’t get a shot of the doorway (thought i did) but it isn’t tampering in any way with any remaining historical fixtures. In reality it is simply making it possible to lock and secure all parts of the fort.

Here is another shot of the “Indian burial mound”. This is the west facing fence, there are small flags and things tied to the fence honoring the dead. The tour guide is on the far left explaining the pear trees and the remains that were located under the side walk to the left of the mound in this photo.

  • DF and naihead- thanks for the photos and the details. Really interesting.

  • I am curious about the Indian burial ground – did it predate the fort itself? Do they say anything about this on the tours? I would be especially interested to know if it was identified any more specifically than “Native American” – Huron? Wyandot? Odawa?
