Every September, the Visitors Center also hosts an annual French & Indian War Encampment, which includes re-enactors, living history demonstrations, drills, and skirmishes conducted along the Hudson River banks. Tourist information and gift shop available at the Center. New exhibits, additional space, and a new research library was recently added! Open May 15 – October 12.
