The Old Fort is a recreation of the fort that stood in Fort Wayne in 1815. We offer events and programs highlighting several hundred years of history.  Since we are a public park,  you can always enjoy the fort’s grounds.  During events, you can experience  a glimpse of life during specific eras of history.  The fort buildings are also open to explore.

When in the city, tune into Old Fort Radio 1640 AM for information on our upcoming events.

Welcome to the Old Fort, where history comes alive!

About Historic Fort Wayne, Inc.

Founded in 2004, Historic Fort Wayne Inc. is a Non-Profit Organization (501c3) that manages the Old Fort in Fort Wayne, IN. Our goal is to educate the community about the Old Fort and its significance to the Old Northwest Territory, the State of Indiana, and the United States during the 17th and 18th centuries through interactive programming. We are a 100% volunteer organization. All of our events are free to the public. All programming is funded by private and corporate donations.

Support the Fort!

Our ongoing programing and maintenance of the Old Fort requires a great deal of outside funding. We receive no regular support from any Governmental agency. Everything we are able to do is based on your generosity. Please consider supporting us in the future to help "Bring History Alive".

We are always looking for new volunteers to help with both programing and maintenance. Please consider a gift of your time and abilities.
