Explored:  March 8, 2003 by Shawn Dunnaway

Fort Heiman is an undeveloped parcel of land about 200 acres in size that was important during the Civil War. Located near the southeastern corner of Calloway County on a bluff overlooking Kentucky Lake, Fort Heiman is currently being restored as part of the National Park system and Fort Donelson in Dover. Below are some photos from 2003
