PERRYSBURG, OH (WTOL) - Officials at the Fort Meigs Historic Site are reminding would-be revelers that sledding is strictly prohibited on the grounds.

Although the fort sits on a steep bluff, the grounds are not maintained for sledding, and sledders risk serious injury.

Fort Meigs is a National Historic Landmark and sledding causes erosion which could compromise future archeology.

The fort is closed until April 4, 2018 but the Visitor Center and museum remain open.
