Have you ever wanted to talk with Dr. Benjamin Franklin? Do you know what weapons the army in the medieval era used? What were the French Settlers like when they inhabited this area? Historical re-enactors representing times from the early Vikings through the WWI converge on Fort Wayne’s Historic Old Fort. Demonstrations will be given on period cooking, gardening, military life, and much more spanning 2000 years. Admission is free - donations are appreciated.
On Friday, May 4 we will welcome 4th & 5th grade students to a day of interactive exploration of pre-1919 history. Lots of demos and lots of fun await! Then stick around for weekend's Muster on the St. Marys - open to everyone Sat. 10-6 and Sun. 10-4.
