Fort Nisqually Living History Museum is turning back the calendar 155 years next week.
And you can step back in time for a day at the fort, a restoration of a Hudson’s Bay Co. outpost in Point Defiance Park.
The annual living history day event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 24 and will feature re-enactors dressed in 1850s garb, according to a news release.
They’ll share their knowledge and skills particular to each building in the fort, which overlooks Puget Sound.
Two new structures – the Education Building and the Visitor Center – were opened last June.
At 1 p.m., the fort’s new exhibit, The Abundant Table: Meal Time at Fort Nisqually, will feature a “Narcissa Whitman,” reminiscing about life and dining at the Hudson Bay Co.’s Fort Vancouver.
Admission is $6 for adults; $5 for seniors, members of the military and students; $4 for young people from 3-17; and $3 for children, 4-12.
