Fort Steilacoom living history open house
July 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Historic Fort Steilacoom will host a living history open house. Located at 9601 Steilacoom Blvd. (on the grounds of Western State Hospital) in Lakewood, Fort Steilacoom occupies an important position in the history of early America and the Pacific Northwest.
Located in the south Puget Sound, Fort Steilacoom was a part of an early network of settlements, including forts, camps and military posts, which were owned by either the United States or the Hudson’s Bay Company. Today, the historic Fort Steilacoom Association seeks to interpret and preserve the fort’s remaining structures, reminding current and future generations of the fort’s contributions to the history of the United States.
Learn about the U.S. Army fort 1849-68 and see living historians in period dress as you tour the four historic buildings on the grounds. You can also visit the museum and gift shop. Donations are accepted.
