We are sad to announce that Dec. 7 Christmas at the Fort and Dec. 14 Christmas Swing Dance are both cancelled due to facility conditions pertaining to one of our buildings on site. These events will return next year. We thank you all for the support in 2019 and look forward to your visit in 2020!
“Hold My Horse” is a true story about Civil War General Israel Richardson, who entered service at Fort Wayne. It's a short, light-hearted recounting showing true leadership, compassion, and more than a bit of ironic humor.
Only $3 to rent or $5 to buy. Proceeds benefit Historic Fort Wayne Coalition and Save Historic Antietam Foundation (where Richardson was mortally wounded).
Historic Fort Wayne regular operating hours are every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm, May through October. Longer hours during many special events. Guided tours are available almost every weekend and weekday tours are available by appointment.
Historic Fort Wayne Coalition is the volunteer organization responsible for much of the maintenance at the fort. We're a non-profit dedicated to preserving Fort Wayne's history and the legacy of those who served here during its 128 years of operation.
We've got some unique items in our online store, just for you or the history lover in your life. Our shopping cart is safe and secure so order with confidence. Every cent of profit goes toward the fort's day to day maintenance.
