Historic Happenings and Specialty Tours at The Old Fort House Museum for the 2022 Tour Season

LET’S TALK HISTORY!

Your host John Weber, of the Fort Edward Historical Association, invites you to join him for a weekly evening of lively conversation about HISTORY!  New history – ancient history, two week-old or 18th century history and anything between.   Come to converse or listen & learn – to agree  or  disagree – but mainly to enjoy an hour and a half of friendly conversation about history with friendly folk.

Our picturesque region is  gilded with the blood, sweat, passion & brilliance of  our history – from the Colonial times  through the French & Indian and Revolutionary War eras.  We  cannot turn around twice  without trodding upon the footprints of our larger-than-life forebears – or  gliding our  canoes over  the same rivers  and lakes  they traversed.  So  why not  get together and talk about them!  Historic topics needn’t  be limited  to  our local history – there’s plenty to go around!

Weather permitting, join us on Tuesday evenings  from  6:30 – 8:00 p.m at Ye Deli on 7 East Street, Fort Edward, New York.   All ages are welcome and our event is free of charge.
