It is a long holiday weekend. How will you entertain your guests? Why not bring your family, friends, and holiday visitors to Fort Stanwix National Monument and see the fort by candlelight? On Saturday, November 30th, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, the staff and volunteers of Fort Stanwix NM invite you to the park’s annual Holiday Open House to explore winter through the eyes of an 18thCentury Mohawk Valley resident.
Did You Know?
Fort Stanwix has two names. Named for Gen. John Stanwix, this was the fort's name under the British. When rebuilt by the Americans, it was then named for Gen. Phillip Schuyler. However, there were several other Fort Schuylers in New York at that time, so the name never stuck due to the confusion.
