“see the star-shaped fort dating back to the 1840's”
Visitors to Fort Ontario State Historic Site today will see the star-shaped fort dating to the early 1840's with 1863 to 1872 improvements. The fort is currently open to the public and undergoing renovations to its two officer's quarters; one is unfurnished but there is a video showing the rooms as they appeared with furniture. There are two Guardhouses, a Powder Magazine, Storehouse, Enlisted Men's Barracks, and windswept ramparts featuring magnificent views of Lake Ontario and underground stone casemates and gallaries to tour. The ghost of British lieutenant Basil Dunbar is said to live here and has been seen many times. The ghost of Corporal Fykes has also appeared in the past, as well as the sounds of children laughing and crying.
