We Got an Order From Forty Fort Pennsylvania!

We Got an Order From Forty Fort Pennsylvania!

We're thankful that Fort Boards is becoming known around the country as the best fort building kit out there. We've had orders from every state and even Puerto Rico! One of the coolest things is seeing some of the names of the cities that we are shipping our fort kits off to. When we got a recent order from Forty Fort Pennsylvania we had to check to make sure it wasn't a joke. We thought maybe the Boaty McBoatFace people were pulling our legs. But, as it turns out, there is a small town of a little less than 5000 people named Forty Fort. We don't know yet if there are plans to change the name to Forty-One Fort after they received their Fort Boards order.
