HOME IS WHERE THE HEARTH IS — Kierstin Bratge keeps warm by the fire in the German Room at Fort Stanwix National Monument on Saturday night. Dozens of historic re-enactors gathered to share what the holidays were like in the Mohawk Valley during the 18th century as part of Fort Stanwix’s annual Holiday Open House. The fort will be available for holiday viewing through the end of November. A schedule of events for 2018 will be posted soon at Fort Stanwix’s website: www.nps.gov/fost.
