Last year over 900,000 people visited the Fort Fisher State Historic Site property! That's local families, school groups, military groups, retirement groups, Jr. ROTC, Boys/Girls Club Summer Camp, YMCA Summer Camp, tourists and more! When the Visitors Center was built back in the mid-1960's, it was originally intended to accommodate 25,000 people annually. We’ve far outgrown our capacity. With your help, we will build a larger, updated facility with more interactive and engaging exhibits, including a re-creation of three additional earthwork mounds and additional cannon emplacements! Help us create a Visitors Center and battleground exhibit that is more worthy of the history it represents and the hundreds of thousands of visitors it attracts.
