Participants will learn about the fort, its role in the settling and surveying of the Northwest Territory, and what life was like on the Ohio frontier in the late 18th century. The buildings in the fort will be open with guides stationed in each one to interact with visitors and share some history. After touring the Fort, visitors can sit by the campfire to listen to stories and enjoy some refreshments. Cost for Fort Steuben by Candlelight is $10 per person; 12 and under $5.
