Welcome to

The Fort Collective

A unique downtown space for the local community to work, shop, eat good food and drink good coffee—all in one location.

Step Inside Your Second Home

Our intention is to make The Fort Collective one of your favorite places in Downtown Chillicothe to visit. A place you can feel at home, hit pause for a while, enjoy good food and coffee with good company, or find a quiet corner alone to open your laptop as inspiration hits. This is what The Fort is all about.
