Touring Historic Fort Steuben is an opportunity to step back in time, to see what life was like for the soldiers and settlers who came to the Ohio frontier in the late 18th century.
Inside each of the buildings there are furnishings and articles that would have been typical of the time. Some of them are unfamiliar to our modern eyes. What is that gadget on the table in the Officer's Quarters? What are those medical tools in the Hospital?
To make the tour more interesting, we offer a Scavenger Hunt with photos of artifacts that are in the Fort. All the visitors who successfully complete the Scavenger Hunt leave with a special souvenir.
Can you find all the items? Come visit the Fort and try it for yourself!
