Description: Families can get a living history lesson this fall with guided walks, talks, and demonstrations at this local site, where an important battle took place during the American Revolution. 45-minute tours start at 2pm on weekends, with interpreters leading visitors through the story of the Storming of Stony Point. At 3pm, re-enactors present an artillery demonstration, weather permitting. Finally, visitors can try making a hand-forged nail at a blacksmith shop in the Battlefields soldier's camp.
