Fort Massac State Park

Dedicated as the first Illinois state park in 1908 and overlooking the Ohio River from Metropolis, this park has a military history predating the Revolutionary War. October's big Fort Massac Encampment and several other living history weekends scheduled throughout the year bring the past to life for American history buffs.
