Historic Fort Wayne is a community gem, what an incredible place to have to teach us the history of our town. The historical reenactors are great. So much great history....

Favorite time to visit the Old Fort is during Fright Night in October. They give tours through the buildings and tell scary stories. Great time!

If you're interested in the non-agriculture of Allen County, this is your place to visit. The curation was well done and provided a real sense of Fort Wayne's early mechanical past. The Second Floor Court Room has been turned into a beautiful event center.

The place looks to be well kept. We stopped by on a day where it was closed. No signs indicating open days/times. The city is missing out on tourism dollars.

We enjoyed walking through the fort, seeing the actors and touching a bit of history. Showing a real place to my grandchildren to explain how people lived was a great experience.
