The Friends of Fort Knox took total control of the State Park 5 years ago and success of the park has only grown since then. With more than 10 weekend events each year the Friends have raised enough funds to restore and reopen some of the closed sections of the fort to the public, as well as maintain regular maintenance work on things like windows, wooden floors and crumbling brickwork.
Some of the events that keep visitors coming back are the cannon firings and civil war reenactments, Pirate day, The Psychic and Paranormal Faire, Ghost Tours, Scottish Tattoo, and their largest event Fright at the Fort.
As a frequent visitor to the park as well as a volunteer and past employee I am very happy to see the Fort and the Friends of Fort Knox recognized for their efforts.
