The Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site highlights the village’s role in the War of 1812 and offers insight into what life was like for those in Sackets Harbor in the 1800s. Today, visitors can explore the site’s historic structures and grounds and enjoy the Battlefield’s magnificent views of Black River Bay and Lake Ontario.
The site features exhibits, guided and self-guided tours, and a restored 1850’s Navy Yard, Commandant’s House, and Lieutenant’s House. The grounds are open year-round, from dawn until dusk. During the spring, summer, and fall, guests can tour a number of the facilities and learn from the site’s interpretive guides. In addition, the Battlefield offers Living History demonstrations throughout the summer, when visitors can experience the life of a common soldier.
