Poor Fort Harmar: important in the history of the French and Indian War, but being immediately next to the vibrant city of Marietta, pretty much completely neglected. There is nothing here of the fort. There is a purpose-made historical marker, and, interestingly, a series of rock monuments of various time periods. But as it is only a strip of land along a residential street on a low bluff above the river, there is no place to camp, and no amenities.
