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.

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).

What does your girl's have to do with Fort Stanwix. I never understand the posts on Rome Topix! I don't think it's my fault but who knows. There are no "sensible head" to prevail!

So another year goes by and still that eyesore that looks like a lumbar yard is standing. We need to petition Joe Fusco to take down the fort.

Its a waste of money and good property. TAKE DOWN THE FORT.

We need the fort torn down. In it's place should be a gladatorial arena. Anyone willing to participate, and sign a release of liability, shouls be able to compete to the death. The victor would be held harmless legally. Further we could give people convicted of violent crimes the option of serving their full sentence without hope of parole or participating in death matches for an amount of time determined by their crime(s). If they survive they get paroled. It would certainly appeal to this "new" old Roman mentality. In fact people found to be deliberately defaming and libeling others on Topix could be some of the first, best "volunteers."

This city has nothing but a bunch of idiots in it. You do realize that the fort is federal property it don't belong to the city. The city has no say in taking it down. Even if the whole city voted for it to be gone it wouldn't make a difference. Also what's the point in moving it so you lazy scum don't have to drive around it. Get a life and move to Utica/ Syracuse where you belong.
