Overlooking Lake Ontario, the Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site features exhibits, guided and self-guided tours, and a restored 1850’s Navy Yard, Commandant’s House, and Lieutenant’s House. The site focuses on the village’s role in the War of 1812 and offers insight into what life was like for those in Sackets in the 1800s.
The grounds are open year-round, from dawn until dusk. During the late spring, summer, and early fall, guests can visit the facilities and tour the Commandant’s and Lieutenant’s Houses. In addition, the Battlefield offers Living History demonstrations each Saturday of the summer, when visitors can experience the life of a common soldier.
