If you’ve been wanting to visit us at The Fort Collective but not sure what to expect, we got you! We’ve compiled a list of answers to the most commonly asked questions here:
What actually is The Fort Collective?
The Fort Collective is a communal space created to build and support our community. It’s part of a broader revitalization effort of the local area to foster and strengthen the community spirit of Chillicothe, Ohio. You will find private office spaces, retail stores, great food and coffee, and additional seating outside on our lovely outdoor patio.
How exactly does The Fort build and support the community?
It looks like folks stopping in for a good meal or coffee drink and starting a dialogue to learn more about each other. It also looks like shopping small and local at our on-site retail stores that support local entrepreneurs and artisans in our community.
What kind of on-site retail stores are inside The Fort, and what do they offer?
Rōst is the central hub of The Fort Collective and the main seating area. The seating is a mixture of comfortable couches and club chairs mixed with table seating for groups of 4-6 people and a 12-person community table. Rōst offers incredible coffee roasted right here on-site and delicious food!
