Ohio’s only Revolutionary War fort was built in 1778 at Fort Laurens. Today, a museum contains an audio-visual presentation, artifacts from the fort’s excavation and examples of weapons and uniforms used there. Visitors can also see the outline of where the fort once stood, and the Tomb of the Unknown American Patriot, a crypt containing the remains of 21 soldiers that died defending the fort. The museum grounds also include a picnic area, and a covered pavilion available for rental. This site is managed by the Tuscarawas County Convention and Visitors Bureau through an agreement with the Ohio Historical Society.
