Det gamle danske fort i Frederiksted er desværre dårligt vedligeholdt, hvilket skæmmer indtrykket af den historiske og ikoniske bygning. Det var her, at den danske guvernør Peter von Scholten i 1848 i reaktion mod et truende slaveoprør frigav alle slaverne på de danske vestindiske øer med ordene: 'Now you are free. You are alle emanchipated.' Han gjorde det uden den danske konges vidende, men vandt senere kongens forståelse, da han forklarede, at han derved havde afværget et blodigt opgør, som ville have krævet mange menneskeliv. Inde i fortet ser man de torturmidler, som blev taget i anvendelse for at tugte slaverne. På 1. sal ses et rekonstrueret lokale for guvernøren. Mange af møblerne er dog kommet andetsteds fra. I fortet ses også en kopi af den check på 25 millioner US dollars, som USA betalte Danmark for købet af øerne i 1917.

En helt ubegribeligt interessant del af Danmarks historien. Det var her Peter von Scholten frigav slaverne i 1848. En historie om slaveoprør, uhørlige afstraffelser, slaveriet ophør og slavernes, soldaternes, plantageejernes samt øvrige menneskers liv og færden. På fortet et blik i de lokalerne rigt udstillet med massive maghoni møbler. Flot bygningsværk fra 1760érne.

The Fort is a mid-eighteenth century Danish low masonry structure at the end of the Cruise Ship dock as you walk into town off the ship.
The Fort Museum is only open when the cruise ship is in.
The fort was used as one of the ceremony transferring signing locations when the islands ownership of the Virgin Islands changed from Denmark to the United States in 1917.

The red fort with its deep blood red walls and black canons sits stoically on the water front next to the clear water beach. Its a perfect photo opp.

The staff could be a bit more enthusiastic in regard to the presentation of this national historic site, but very interesting if you like forts and history.

I recommend anyone visiting St Croix stop and see the fort or take a picture from the pier. I can’t imagine it will be here all that much longer or be in any shape to be a tourist attraction. Can’t imagine why there isn’t a historical society preserving this piece of history for the cultural significance. Yes it was the smaller fort compared to Christiansted and no cruise ships are not docking here but why doesn’t someone restore it or at least slap a fresh coat of paint on it? Shaking my head.

We were staying nearby, but the fort was closed until our last day we were passing and noticed the gates open so stopped. It is small but interesting to explore with beautiful architecture and chippy red paint.

The fort is right next to the pier, and there is parking in the lot across the street. The exterior looks pretty rough and could use some maintenance, as does the area around it. It has very interesting history though, and can be seen in a short time because it is fairly small. If you can get to Christiansted, the fort there is much better maintained and larger.

Locked the door as I walked up. It was just before 3. They said that with so few people coming they close early. With COVID, the cruise ships aren’t bringing crowds, so they lock up early. The exterior grounds are nice, the location is convenient. It isn’t a large place, so you could probably see everything over a lunch outing. It’s also in a convenient spot to visit and see other sites.

We visited during June 2020 post COVID USVI reopening so unfortunately all governments attractions were closed on all three main islands; however you could still walk around and enjoy it from the street view - the plus was that we were literally the only people next to it :)

Haven't seen it inside so my opinion is solely based on what I had seen outside and also how it compares to Fort Christiansvaern on St Croix and Fort Christian on St Thomas; this one is very beaten and appears to be almost falling apart on the shoreline side - I know this side of the island was hit worse in 2018 so probably that is the main contributor to it but the walls and sidewalks around it desperately require repairs and painting :)

What it lacks in cosmetics it definitely makes up in the architecture - all forts on USVI, the old Danish West Indies, bear the style completely different from any other 20+ Caribbean Islands/Nations we have visited previously (ex Spanish. British, Dutch, French) and being a sucker for forts this despite all of the shortcomings made me enjoy the experience.

TIP: I can see how busy this area can get with cruise ships in town, it's literally in front of the pier so during busy times it has to be tough to find a parking spot but once you do roam around and enjoy the boardwalk, local souvenir stores and food places, you will not regret it
