The Real Fort Boonesboro

What's left of Fort Boonesboro is here, alongside the Kentucky River near Boonesboro Beach. This small square of foundation is all that remains, and even it has been reconstructed (it now has concrete holding the stones together) and altered (the stone stairwell is not original).

Although the nearby fake Fort Boonesborough "replica" was built in 1974, no one got around to recognizing the real one as a national historic landmark until 1996.
