A Walk Through History at Fort Laurens

/ April 9, 2022

The event

Visit Fort Laurens State Memorial in Bolivar and check out their new outdoor interpretive story boards. The boards are designed to take visitors on a walk through history where they can learn about Ohio’s only Revolutionary War Fort. In addition to visiting the museum, those using the nearby Towpath Trail can now follow the signs to learn about the history of the fort. The 11 outdoor signs take visitors back in time as they learn about the history of the fort from when it was established in 1778 until it was left abandoned in 1779. The museum will reopen Saturday, April 2nd but the story boards can be enjoyed year round.
