About Winter Garrison 1812

A winter posting at a frontier Fort was never an easy task. Soldiers had to chop wood to stay warm and cook their own meals. Natives were always around in 1812 and many could not be trusted to be friendly. Visit with the soldiers and feel what it was like to live in a frontier Fort during the winter. The Fort will be open to the public: 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 23. Admission: Freewill donation. For more information, tune to AM 1040 Old Fort Radio or go to: www.oldfortwayne.org or call (260) 437-2836. The Old Fort is located at 1201 Spy Run Ave Fort Wayne, IN 46805. Parking is available at Headwaters and Lawton Parks.
