Fort Klock Opening Day

May 18 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Fort Klock Opens for the Season on

May 18, 2024

Visitors may visit the fort from 10 am to 4 pm on May 18

Officials with Fort Klock said Memorial Day “is a day of heroism and heritage.”

Fort Klock is part of a 50-acre complex that includes the historic homestead, a renovated Colonial Dutch Barn, a blacksmith shop, and a 19th-century schoolhouse.

The opening day provides the opportunity for visitors to view time-honored skills passed through generations. Visitors may visit the gardens where members have completed the chores necessary to sustain an 18th-century farm. There also is a blacksmith shop, where visitors will be able to see farm tools created from a hot iron, and colonial food cooking on an open hearth.

​There is a textile exhibit room at the fort where visitors can watch as the barn frame loom is warped and prepared for the season’s weaving projects. The demonstration is hands-on, and visitors can participate or watch as the yarn is spun in the spinning wheel. There is also a trade room gift shop with items, gifts, books, and Mohawk Valley maps for sale.

Tours are available during opening day on the hour for a nominal fee of $5
