It is a long holiday weekend. How will you entertain your guests when the turkey is gone?
Why not bring your family and friends to Fort Stanwix National Monument and see the fort in a different light – candlelight. On Saturday, November 29th, 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 18th Century Mohawk Valley resident.

Decorated and candlelit rooms will be staffed by living historians, sharing origins of today and yesterday's favorite "American" holiday traditions. Sit by the fire, listen to period music, and sing along to the merry songs of old. Stop in the Marinus Willett Center at the corners of Dominick and James Streets and explore more displays about frontier life.

Fort Stanwix National Monument is open seven days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission to the park is free. For more information about upcoming events, please call the park at (315) 338-7730.
