Memorial Day Weekend at Fort D Historic Site

Saturday, May 27th – Monday, May 29th, 9 am-3 pm

First observed after the end of the Civil War, Memorial Day honors the memory of U. S. soldiers who have died in military service. Local re-enactors will honor the memory of veterans past and present. May is also Historic Preservation Month, and Fort D is an early 20th century example of citizens seeking to preserve the past. There will be a special make-and-take activity on Saturday the 27th - 10 am to 2 pm for adults and children alike; you will learn about the “Language of the Fan” and paint your own paper fan to take home. So make Fort D your destination Memorial Day Weekend. Admission to the weekend is free; the make and take activity is available for a $2 donation to pay for the cost of materials.
