Fort Ethan Allen is one of three surviving forts from the Civil War. The old fort walls have long been removed and has been serving the community as a park. Even though the site has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a Local Historic District, it was missing site interpretation. This project implemented a comprehensive interpretive plan that tells the story of this historically significant place and brings an educational component to the park, along with landscaping and ADA-improvements.
