This sprawling military installation was built in Sackets Harbor following the War of 1812 to protect America's northern border and named after President James Madison who actually came here to visit "his fort."


Madison Barracks remained an active military installation through the end of World War II and is now is now operated as a residential community with apartments as well as boasting an inn, a restaurant and a marina.


Madison Barracks was the U.S. Army's primary post in upstate New York until Pine Camp (later renamed Fort Drum) was opened in 1908. The buildings are constructed out of native limestone and there is a large parade ground and several buildings which date back to the camp's beginning. President U.S. Grant served here as a young 2nd lieutenant and today his barracks are marked with a plaque in his honor.
