Ideal for any scout, student or organized group! Overnight stays allow your group the truly unique opportunity to sleep inside an original 19th Century Fortress. Sleep like the soldiers slept in our restored bunk rooms. Or pitch you own tents and sleep under the stars on our 6 ½ acre parade field.
Our Overnight Barracks includes four modern bathrooms, a common room with a kitchen area, oak tables and benches and a mid-nineteenth century wood burning stove, as well as, three bunk rooms containing a total of 38 bunk spaces.
Most of the overnight facility has been finished in plain style to look like an Army barracks, while the chaperones quarters restoration was done with great effort made to maintain its original Greek revival Architecture.
