Site of proposed museum for Fort Stanwix

Panorama of property on north side of Dominick St. and east & west sides of Spring St., Rome, NY showing American Legion property and property of Frank George, which have been suggested as possible sites for a museum at Ft. Stanwix. Nothing remains of Fort Stanwix, "the fort that never surrendered," at this site where it once stood. Fort Stanwix was constructed in 1758 during the French and Indian War in present day Rome, NY. During the Revolutionary War it was successfully defended by General Peter Gansevoort and his men against British forces under General Barry St. Leger. In was dismantled during the 19th century, but was declared a national monument in 1935 and reconstructed in the 1970s. This photo shows property that existed on the property before the area became a historic site. This image was created to record the historic site activities of the New York State Conservation Department.
