Contact: Mike Kusch, 315-336-4448
Fort Stanwix National Monument received excellent marks for visitor satisfaction, as well as for their understanding of the fort’s national significance. The National Park Service, in partnership with the University of Idaho, conducted a survey during July 2006 asking visitors to grade the park’s performance. 400 survey questionnaires were randomly distributed to visitors throughout the month; with 88 people responding. After visiting the site the visitors graded the park’s performance, and mailed the survey in a self-addressed envelop to the university. During July people from throughout the United States and several foreign countries toured Fort Stanwix.
