Built on War of 1812 Heritage

— Maritime Heritage —

A Strategic Place

The shelter offered by Sackets Harbor made this an attractive place to base the U.S. Navy fleet. The growth patterns set at the time the military facilities were built are responsible for the layout of the village today. Some of the structures built then still stand, and many street and place names come from that military legacy.

A Fortified Naval Base


During the War of 1812 the harbor was teeming with naval activity and dominated by ships of war. The settlement was fortified against attack by land or sea.



Sackets Harbor Present

A Recreational Port


Historical names are being used for most of the historic structures in the Village.

Today boat traffic in the harbor is mainly recreational motorboats and sailboats, moored in the many marinas or docking to visit the village's many attractions. Ask about our Harbor Walk guidebook and guided walking tours to discover more of the area's rich heritage.
