Lantern Tour of Fort Steilacoom Park
This area was important to the native community for generations. It was the site of Ft. Steilacoom in 1849, one of the first farms in the area, and the grounds for the Washington State Hospital Asylum. Many of the residents were laid to rest here but their stories go untold. Join us as we get EXCLUSIVE access to this site at night. This tour of Fort Steilacoom Park will delve into the history of the site and the surrounding area. We will explore, by lantern light, the grounds of the Hill Ward, the cemetery, the barnyard, and more as we uncover the stories that wove this land together and unravel the humanity from years of local lore.
Come experience Fort Steilacoom Park as you never have before and learn about the history that continues to linger here in the dark.
