Please do continue the conversation -- I do recall the name Lee Hanson.

My experience indicates your suggestion to build the visitor center within the fort itself would not have provided sufficient space for presentation along with storage and preservation of their large inventory of artifacts and documents that are not on display.

I don't know specifics about the size of their collection, but from my experience with the Rome Historical museum, only a very small portion of their collections are on display at any given time. The museum is continually being rearranged to put away a current display and preparation of a new one. If you ask me real nice, I'll try to arrange a tour through the collection rooms downstairs with you. The collection takes up much of the space in the basement of the museum's building; all of it pertaining to Rome's history in some way.

I know that.They have a very small amount of stuff on display which is confusing.I think by seeing whats is inside the fort it would have been better to put the museum there..Mr Hansons thoughts about how the fort should be where a little overwhelming dont you think? Money is no object

I read a few source materials about the actual location of Ft. Stanwix. I learned that many authors refer back to Lee Hanson's work: Casemates and Cannonballs: Archeological Investigations http://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt...

Hanson's descriptions of locations of specific buildings, earthworks or artifacts found within the park are cross-referenced to the archeological digs. For example, the dig revealed that the ditch that was dug around the fort was later filled in by tearing down and using the materials from the earthen berm surrounding the ditch. That kind of evidence is hard to dispute.

The work has been peer-reviewed. I could find no documentation to support the notion that the monument is in the wrong location. Can anyone point me to any such materials?

Hanson looks to be spot on -- anyone care to prove him wrong?

Mr Hanson was too much for me we should have used some of the old buildings that where there,ie. Rome Savings bank Fort Stawick Hotel.We didnt have to be spot on.Who really is going to check if the fort is in the exact spot?I like New York State history and Romes history but we gave a little too much for nothing.We could have lured tourist with some clever commercial ideas instead of that exact on the same spot Fort.

I spend a great deal of time worrying about my girls vagina. No time to concern myself with the fort. Hopefully sensible heads will prevail!!
Worry about your girl's vagina and don't concern yourself with this topix. This topix is idiotic and it has drawn more that 250 replies (including this one - my first and last).
