Post Miamies: 1754-1763

The French came to the area now known as Fort Wayne in the 1680’s. They built a fortified trading post called Miamie and occupied it until 1760 when it was surrendered to the British at the end of the French and Indian war.

Come and experience the 1750´s as they actually were. See the French Marines who once protected and garrisoned this Post, watch the British Rangers march in from Fort Detroit to accept their surrender.

Visit with the French Voyageurs that moved the freight up and down the rivers to trade with the natives to obtain the furs that the Europeans desired so much. Join us as we step back in time to the 1750's.

  • 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 27th
  • 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 28th

Tours of the Fort will be offered throughout the weekend.

Admission: Freewill donation.
