The Fort at No. 4 is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to creating a greater understanding of the multi-ethnic, multi-layered, messy history of the 18th century. To that end the museum employs static displays, living history and reenactment activities, classes/workshops, tours, presentations, and special events. With a better understanding of past actions, attitudes, and norms of behavior, one is able to make better informed decision about current and future issues:

“You are not judged by the height your have risen, but from the depth you have climbed.”
Frederick Douglass

The Fort at No. 4’s mission is: “To professionally collect, preserve and authentically interpret both physical and intellectual resources which provide an educational understanding and appreciation for the 18th century heritage of the Connecticut River Valley.”
