ROME- Fort Stanwix National Monument in Rome had Junior Ranger Day on Saturday to encourage kids and their families to explore and learn about the countries national parks.
The theme for the day was, "past tales, new discoveries", and gave people the chance to discover and enjoy the sights and sounds, and smells of the 18th century.
"History is a lot of fun, and learning is also a lot of fun," said Arielle Goellner who is a park ranger at Fort Stanwix. She added, "Even though sometimes you don't know you're learning things, being at the fort and experiencing history as it was with people walking around in colonial gear, and seeing a cannon being fired, and smelling what it would have smelled like back then is a learning experience."
Fort Stanwix is open seven days a week from 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. and admission is free.
