Reproduction Stockade Fort

Fort Randolph is a full size reproduction of a stockade fort that was originally at the confluence of the Kanawha and Ohio Rivers. Now at Krodel Park, the fort is generally open on summer weekends, and occasionally has re-enactments. There are four or five buildings within the walls; most are open for viewing and have artifacts and displays inside. The blacksmith shop is interesting to see when demonstrations are taking place.

Fort Randolph was where Chief Cornstalk was killed, which later placed a curse on Point Pleasant, supposedly.
