Fort Zumwalt Park

See Photo Location

Fort Zumwalt Park has two historic sites, native woodland scenery and fishing in Lake Whetsel. The Darius Head Home, built circa 1884, is open for tours during special events and by appointment. A large limestone chimney and an interpretive sign mark the site of Zumwalt’s Fort, a War of 1812 settler fort. A replica of the original fort was completed in 2015 and is open for tours. The park contains a one-mile walking/jogging path and a large playground under shady trees. Fort Zumwalt Park is home to the annual Celebration of Lights drive-through holiday light display beginning the day after Thanksgiving through Dec. 30.
