Fort Meigs hosts holiday open house


Experience shopping, food, music and more at the Fort Meigs Holiday Open House on from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 9

Join us in our decorated visitor center for a family friendly event filled with lots of activities for everyone.

Re-enactors portraying soldiers and civilians from the War of 1812-era will provide musket demonstrations and discuss camp life during the winter. Kids can try their hands at several activities and help decorate cookies.

New this year is a kid’s clothing station where they can try on clothing from the time period and make a soldier’s shako or lady’s bonnet to take home. Father Christmas just might make an appearance as well.

Several local artisans will have items for sale.

Admission is $1 for adults and youth. Ohio Historical Society Members and children five and under are free.
