An official Path Through History Site! The 70-acre Sackets Harbor Battlefield State Historic Site saw two battles in the War of 1812. The site covers 70 acres of park-like land including open fields, a landscaped tree grove, and Navy Yard. Exhibits and tours are available of the restored 1850 Navy Yard and Commandant's House. During the summer months, guides dressed in military clothing of 1813 reenact the camp life of the common soldier.
