The French were the first Europeans to settle in the Great Lakes region. They arrived in northeast Indiana in the late 1600s. The confluence of the three rivers helped facilitate a lucrative fur trade with the Native American tribes. Political enmity between the British and the French in Europe carried over into North America. To protect their new venture, the French completed construction of Fort Miami in 1722, the first of two French forts built in the area. This weekend at the Old Fort, witness French and British forces reenact the clash for control of the area. In addition, fur traders, Native Americans, soldiers, and civilians will demonstrate daily activities. Experience the sound of muskets and cannons! Visit with local artisans and check out the latest Old Fort merchandise.
