Fort Hunter Mansion and Park is a historic riverfront center along the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg. But its name is misleading.You won’t find a fort. It existed in colonial times, but no longer. You will find a mansion and a park, but also a a lot more than that. This 40-acre park honors millennia of river traffic and shoreline life. It includes more than 18 historic sites, including a tavern, barn and federal-style mansion — the central attraction — perched on a bluff above the Susquehanna River.
