A significant Civil War site overlooking the Roanoke River, Fort Branch is known as “the best preserved earthwork Civil War Site east of the Mississippi.”
Seven of the fort’s original eleven cannon are on display there. Many smaller Civil War artifacts as well as pottery from an 18th century riverside settlement and Native American artifacts are also on display there.
Open to the public on weekends from April through the first of November when the annual battle re-enactment is held.
