Event Navigation

Get ready for garden season with this hands-on workshop presented by Marty Montague, OSU Extension agricultural educator. Marty will share information on preparing and amending the soil, crop selection and timing, and provide take-home information for guests. Participants will get their hands in the soil as they learn how to mark rows in the garden. This class is presented FREE as a partnership with Oklahoma Historical Society and OSU Extension.

On the fourth Saturday of each month, the Fort Towson Historic Site welcomes visitors to take part in the Hands-On Historic Skills series of demonstrations.

Every month, guests can try their hand at using period artifacts and tools with the guidance of Fort Towson staff members and historical interpreters. Hands-on demonstrations allow individuals to experience the past by touching, using and gaining an appreciation for historical objects while in the Fort Towson setting.

Updates on monthly programs and special events can be found on the Fort Towson Historic Site’s Facebook page or at www.okhistory.org. For more information, email fttowson@history.ok.gov or call 580-873-2634. The Fort Towson Historic Site is located north of U.S. 70 near Fort Towson.
