Fred Ahrens

Fascinating historical site. War of 1812, when Ohio was a frontier.

J.E. Rice

A great recreation of the original fort that was dismantled before the war of 1812. Located on the exact same spot as the original, the fort has an amazing view overlooking the Maumee River which made it a strategic location during the war. There is also a quite impressive museum along with the fort.

Joshua Schoonover

Awesome place to visit and fish out in front during the annual walleye run

Jenifer vdS

Jeffrey May

Excellent

Eric Morman

It was a nice stop for an afternoon with family. We were able to learn about the area history and explore the fort. Museum had a lot of facts and historical pieces. Be prepared to have a charge to enter but thought it was worth the value since it goes into the preservation of the site.

Melissa Rednour

Loved this place!! Definitely worth the stop!

Andrew Crews

We went to see the First Siege 1813 here and had a really good time. The schedule allowed for a good pace to see the muskets, cannons, and riflemen. Our kid really enjoyed the mini-militia as she marched and "fired" a musket. The event highlight was the battle demonstration - it was highly entertaining and informational. If historical reenactments are something you enjoy then this would be a good event to visit.

Kris Maier

Very informative and great experience for the kids!

Michael Emshwiller

Utterly fantastic representation of times past. An excellent place to visit.

Ron Bennett

Love fishing there. Always beautiful

Shawn

Cool historic spot. Large grounds. Not as interactive as I was assuming...but maybe not a special day to do so either? No people in costume and no demonstrations.

Chris James

Fort Meigs offers a huge open area to explore outside of the actual fort, which is great for kids, dogs, or anyone that needs to stretch their legs. Inside the fort is such a wealth of history and knowledge. If you are in Perrysburg around Halloween-time the garrison ghost walk is the perfect spooky stroll!!

Keith Mauldin

Great Staff

steve mayes

Built in 1813 to help defend north western Ohio during the War of 1812. Fort Meigs is located along the south bank of the Maumee River just outside the Historic town of Perrysburg. Just across the river on the north bank are the remnants of the old British Fort Miami. There is plenty to see and do at Ft Meigs. They have a great muesum and lots of displays within the walls of the Fort. If you want the full effect, go while the re-enactment is on. It takes place in May every year. You will definitely enjoy your visit! ☺

Patricia Nickols

Nice day trip. I'd like to come when they are doing reenactments. Nice place to visit if you want to hear some history.

Jenny Schnell

Wonderful museum, well done. Our children enjoyed it also. Reasonably priced.

Dick Holt

On my way from California to the East Coast in March, I stopped at Fort Meigs and was impressed in many ways. I hadn't realized the fort was so large, nor the walls built of such large timber (the men must have been MEN at that period). The museum was outstanding in every way, lots of good displays , very well kept up and clean, the docents very pleasant and informative. The reason for my visit was that I had donated a powder-horn (Archibald Everett - Sept 16, 1813 Fort Meigs) and was pleased that it is part of their permanent display. If I ever head that way again I will revisit the site and wish to thank everyone past and present for the reconstruction and maintenance. Fortunately the weather was chilly but dry, couldn't have asked for anything more. Again my thanks. Dick Holt

Johnathan Early

If you are Interested in history (especially war or Indians)... This is the place.to check.out...it is.the remains of one.of.the forts from the battle of fallen timbers... (I believe)... That took place back in 1794... Just think at one time soldiers actually stood,walked,fought,and did other things there... All the way back in 1794... It is possible that even Indians stood there as Well... Can you imagine standing in the same.place as people did back in 1794... Amazing...stop by and check it out... It is awesome...

Matthew Eck

Dennis Batdorf

Love this place

Steve Francia

Great living history "Fort" giving you a great idea of how the soldiers, militia (& their women folk) lived and died. You'll need about 2 hours.

steve dunkelberger

Such an interesting place that covers a short, but important time in history.

Justin Green

Was a cool small stop on our way home from our honeymoon. Came with no real expectations but found a fun museum/outdoor exhibit. There is an initial museum, this will be your bigger exposure to authentic items from the battlefield and period, following the indoor museum is an outdoor field consisting of a track to each blockhouse fortification a couple of which are accessible to the public and a few of which are not. I throughly enjoy the way museums like this make history come alive for both children and adults by making a very large portion of grounds accessible from close up by patrons but wished there was a live person at some point explaining some of the lore and history.

Hillary Hansen

Great date spot if you're into history.

Mike Levy

Great place to check out the local history!

Jeremy Heaton

The fort is always a good place to learn about the war of 1812. There is also the Monroe river raisin museum in Monroe mi. They have a bit more about the war as a whole not just about that specific one.

Robin Burkhart

It was a great fireworks display, and a very clean park.

Adam Gardner

Embrace history!loved the entire experience & helpful staff.check out all they have to offer in the gift shop as well.

Beverly Youngren

We arrived on day visitors center closed, but local maintenance fellow shared history. Loved it!!

susan bernard

Our family enjoys the events at Ft. Meigs

John B.

You are greeted by the staff and given a video to watch and then about a 15 to 20 minute brief on the Fort and how it came to be. The staff is great. There needs to be better pathways through the fort and maybe get the grass cut a little lower, it was a little difficult to walk through. But it is a great history lesson. Come check it out.

Scott Carlson

beautiful place with small museum

Ashley Ann

This place is so much fun they have winter craft days and it's cool to explore on a empty day or with all the reenactors

Steven Jones

Great historical site

Christine Snyder

We walked the paths when the museum itself was closed. But you're still able to walk around the grounds. Very peaceful.

Liz L

Fort Meigs Historic Site. Ohio's War of 1812 Battlefield. 1783, the Americans won the American Revolutionary against England. Tension between the two Countries remained until it fester into a war. 1813, a small British Army unit with support from Indians attempted to capture the recently constructed fort to forestall an American offensive against Detroit, and its Fort Detroit in the Great Lakes region, the British failed to capture the fort and were forced to raise the siege. Fort Meigs is a reconstruction of that period. In the Visitor Center there is a Museum that exhibits hundreds of original artifacts, found on the site. Gift Shop, clean rest room, & friendly staff.

Flynn Baarnett

If you like history and want to learn more about the War of 1812, Ft. Meigs is a must visit. One of the largest forts built during the war, it stands on approximately 10 acres of land. There is also museum documenting that time period in American history along with store selling merchandise pertaining to that era.

As a history lover, I desire to learn all I can about what events shaped this great nation of ours. I love our country because of our freedoms and countless men and women in this country sacrificed so much for us to have them. It is so important to learn

Fort Meigs is a great place to visit for a history lesson. You get to see what it was like back in the old-old days. It's amazing to see and the kids love it as well. I remember seeing it when I was a child and now my kids get to as well.

Jen Davenport

U want to learn some history, u should come here. They have a museum here as well.

Vicki Smith

Would like to make it during re enactment instead of just w as ll thru

Thomas Peart

I think it's wonderful that we keep our history together for us and the younger generation we have to know our past that's all there is to it!! Way too many things happen again if we're not aware of our past history! Many of our freedoms now are being eroded because of our lack of knowledge of History. We have to be careful how much power we give to people that are over us, and I think you know what I mean!

Melvin Sprauer

Come out and relive the war of 1812... One of Northwest Ohio greatest historical sites that is a must see!!!

David Carrillo

Great history in the Midwest. Highly recommend.

Just went to see the reenactment between the British & Americans today. They have it every year during Memorial Day weekend.

Marie Thompson

This is a nice place to walk around. Make sure you wear closed shoes and sunscreen. There was a nice volunteer working on the garden.

Much of the War of 1812 was fought in what is now Ohio and Michigan. There is a lot of history here.

A great little historic park!

Rodney Bynum

Fort Meigs is a great place to take the family and learn about the past we had a wonderful time and I suggest you to visit and learn

Steve H.

I always enjoy a historical fort more when there is still a structure to walk through. The staff has done a very good job of telling the fort's history in both the visitor center and the fort displays. This is another fort that played a significant role in American history. I recommend a visit when in the area.

Morgan Stenson

My troop and I went camping, the day we picked had been cold and rainy but it was still very fun and interesting

Bazeleel

Great place for walks

Donald Wallace

Reconstructed historic fort from the War of 1812. It was built by General William Henry Harrison, who went on to become President of the United States. The fort survived two British sieges. The visitor center has many artifacts on display. In the summer there are costumed guides in the fort. There are re-enactments, activities and lectures throughout the year.

James N. Phillips Jr.

Great historical visit! This coupled with the River Rasin National Battlefield inn Monroe Michigan can give a person a great understanding of the war of 1812 and its importance in this area! While it is not Antietam or Gettysburg, it was no less instrumental in the battles to controls the northwest areas of our fledgling republic.

Emily Hohn

My son enjoyed the nice nature walk on the river.. We seen ducks and deer up close❤

Dan Motchnik

Great historic site, very accessible, well kept. Staff is very helpful amd attentive. Visited for the Revolutionary War reenactment - Nice event overall foe the whole family.

Panda L

I never know when it will have access closed so it's hard to plan a trip. Keep your options open just in case.

Sarah Short

There is a very nice visitor center that gives the history and background of the area and the war. Then you can walk around the fort for an even more realistic experience. Beautiful views of the river, too!

T D W

A must to see if you are in the Toledo metropolitan area. The reconstructed fort from the 1800 played a critical role in defending America during the war of 1812 I only had a hour to visit but from what I saw, it was amazing. Enjoyed the displays in all the bunkhouses that were in the fort. And I was surprised to reenactors on a Friday morning who were very friendly and informative.

Debbi Klem

Great class in cooking during the mid 1800s.

Jamie rulka

This was a school trip fir is and my 10 year old lived it. Grate way ro get kids in to history.

Rosalie Robinson

Have lived in the area my whole life finally got around to visiting this historic place. Nice museum tells of life during the period and what led to the need of the fort. The fort itself is a nice walk and the buildings of the fort have exhibits in them telling what soldiers lived through, during war and peace time. Recommend a good 2 hours or more to see and read about this historical site.
