DescriptionHistoric Fort Steuben is a reconstructed 18th century fort on its original site overlooking the Ohio River in Steubenville, Ohio. Built to protect the surveyors of the Northwest Territory in 1786, the rebuilt Fort provides living history and educational programs on the life of the soldiers, the surveyors, the Native Americans, and the settlers on the Ohio frontier. Visitors can enter the Officers' Quarters, Enlisted Men's Quarters, the Hospital, the Commissary, Blacksmith and Quartermaster's Stores, the Guardhouse,and the Frontier Camp. An active archaeology dig is on site with accompanying exhibits. The adjacent First Federal Land Office is an 1800 log structure- a frontier home/office - that depicts the life of the early settlers. The Visitors Center houses the Exhibit Hall that features changing exhibits on Ohio history and culture and the Museum Shop which stocks books, souvenirs, toys and historical maps. Ohio Valley Frontier Days celebrates our frontier heritage annually at the first weekend of June. Fort Steuben Park offers green space within downtown Steubenville and summer concerts on Thursday evenings in the Berkman Amphitheater. And the holiday season opens at the end of November with Steubenville Nutcracker Village and Advent Market in Fort Steuben Park!
