Hours:
Saturday: 10:00am–6:00pm

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 WWII converge on Fort Wayne’s Historic Old Fort.  Demonstrations will be given on period cooking, gardening, military life, and much more spanning up to 2000 years.

Local 4th & 5th grade classes may register for Education Day on Friday, May 4.
