One event on March 11, 2023 at 10 a.m.
On Friday, March 10, and Saturday, March 11, from 10 a.m. to noon, and 1 to 3 p.m., on both days, Fort Gibson Historic Site will hold a living history program about early 19th-century trading. This come-and-go program will provide an interpretation of trade that occurred among the American Indian nations and other settlers in the area. Examples of trade goods of the era will be on display.
When Fort Gibson was established in 1824, it was the westernmost military outpost of its day. With 300–500 hundred troops stationed there, the fort was a supply point and bustling center for the trade activity of settlers, fur traders, and Indian Territory nations due to its location along the Three Forks River network.
This program is free with paid admission, which can be purchased at the commissary located at 907 N. Garrison Ave. or at the office located within the palisade grounds.
