The Dundee attractions are pleantiful in this central Ohio town. The area is known for its scenic and picturesque beauty year round. During the summer the lush greenery of the forest and parks offer a connection with nature. The winter months with the snow capped trees and a blanket of white, transform the area into a winter wonderland paradise. Finally the fall arrives with the vibrant colors that can line the landscape as far as the eye can see.
1. The Fort Lauren's State Memorial
For a taste of local history BBOnline recommends the Fort Lauren State Memorial. The Fort Lauren State Memorial was named in honor of Henry Laurens who was the president of the continental congress. It is small but one of the more moving of the Dundee Attractions. Fort Laurens was built in 1778 to serve as the headquarters for an attack on the British in Detroit. The men in the fort suffered terribly as supplies were disrupted during a month-long siege with Indians that were in the grips of British control. To survive the men had to eat boiled moccasins. Only the outline of the fort remains today. However there is a small museum on the site which houses some of the artifacts that were unearthed during the Fort's excavation. Fort Lauren was abandoned in 1789 and was never manned again. Park officials often host war reenactments for the public to view. The area is also ideal for a picnic and offers excellent facilities. There are remains of the soldiers that died during the siege buried on the site at the "Wall of the Unknown Patriot." Learning the many touching legends is just one of the advantages of staying in a Dundee Inn.
