Description

Added by Lucas Bremer

Explore a historic site next to the Wabash River.

Located in Vincennes, Indiana, the urban park honors the heroic deeds of George Rogers Clark and his men who captured the British Fort Sackville on 25 February 1779.

Today a memorial similar to those found in Washington D.C. now honors Clark and the site of Fort Sackville. Walking to the nearby Riverwalk, you will follow a paved path that will lead to other important historical sites to the state of Indiana all within one mile of each other.

The riverwalk features an observation deck, shade structures and bench swings. The trail serves to connect many of the city’s historic sites, including President William Harrison’s Grouseland mansion and sites connected to the state’s territorial capitol.
