• Fort Meigs

    Hear the sounds of fifes and drums echo across the river and the smell of gunpowder from the artillery as you step back to the War of 1812 at Fort Meigs. Built by William Henry Harrison in 1813, it is the largest reconstructed, wooden walled fortification in America and withstood two major attacks by the British.

    The fort was rebuilt in 2003 and a new Visitor Center and Museum were added. The Visitor Center houses a 3,000 square foot museum, Ohio History Museum Store, and educational classrooms that are available for rent. The fort has four interactive, blockhouse exhibits detailing the history of the fort. Interpreters dressed in War of 1812 uniforms give daily musket demonstrations and talks throughout the summer. Reenactments are held each month from May through August.
    The Museum and Visitor Center are open year ’round Wednesday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from Noon – 5:00 p.m. The fort is open April through October.
