April 19, 9 a.m.3 p.m.

Event Navigation

**The Fort Gibson Education Day event is completely full due to high demand.**
On Friday, April 19, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., the Fort Gibson Historic Site will host its annual Education Day. The site will be closed to the general public/nonschool groups on that day.
Living Historians will set up various stations across the grounds depicting multiple aspects of life in the 1800s. The stations one can expect will feature the lives of 1830s and mid-19th-century soldiers, the responsibilities of a laundress, cooking demonstrations at the Mess Hall, what it was like to purchase goods at the sutler’s store, and operations of the Bake House. Visitors will also learn about the history of the Fort Gibson Historic Site at the Commissary by watching a 14-minute orientation video and learn more about the timeline of the fort through new exhibits!

The gift shop will be open to browse everything from 19th-century toys to candy and replicas.

This event is part of the 200th Bicentennial of Fort Gibson. Information is subject to change closer to the event.
