Description
Walk through restored buildings like the town hotel and a cabin, built to replicate the homes in which residents of Fayette used to live. Interpretive panels provide information to transport visitors back in time and tell the story of the town. On the second Saturday of August, the park is transformed back to its glory days with period displays, food and music at the annual Heritage Day.

Located within the Historic Townsite is the Snail Shell Harbor. Approximately 300 feet of lineal dockage provides overnight or day use boating opportunities. The protected waters of Snail Shell Harbor are deep enough for larger pleasure crafts.

Scuba diving is allowed in Snail Shell Harbor during certain times of the day. A fee and use permit is required for this activity so all divers may participate. All submerged artifacts are to remain in place and nothing is to be removed from the harbor bottom
