The spring 2013 Flea Market was held April 13-14. It was a great success as the "coming out" event for much hard work repainting and adding window treatments to the Visitor's Center gym! Much work has gone into the entire Visitor's Center by HFWC members and we are thrilled to show it off. The Fort also came to life as Living Historians trained as the men of the Civil War era did right here.

It was a weekend of training for them. For the public, it was life to the old Fort.

The Fort took on some of her old duties. Captain Breckenridge came out to administer the oath of re-enlistment to one member of his company who is also a Living Historian.

Volunteers welcomed guests not only to the site but the the HFWC's own table. Smiles are all around as members had a greaet time together!

That holds true inside and out. On a chilly day, there's nothing better than a hot cup of coffee fresh off a good campfire and friends to tell stories with.
