fort.stanwix.nps "It takes an endless amount of history to make even a little tradition." -Henry James When Fort Stanwix National Monument opened in 1976, a group of volunteers known as the "Garrison" had already trained for a full year to be able to tell the stories of the past. For many, it was a family activity. Although the Garrison no longer exists as such, the park still has a robust #volunteer program filled with dedicated people who keep history alive.  #nationalpark @NationalParkService #National_park_pictures #GoParks #FindYourPark #rhsfriendsofthefort #memorytomonument #romeNY  #fortstanwix #museumexhibit #fort #history #FlashbackFriday 📸 : @rhsfriendsofthefort From the Rome Historical Society Collection - Image 1998.76.13
