Fort Wayne (non-NWTA)

The NWTA is invited to a unique mid-winter event at historic Fort Wayne in Fort Wayne, IN.

When: February 21-22, 2015

Where: Historic Fort Wayne
1201 Spy Run Avenue
Fort Wayne, IN 46805

Amenities include:
Lodging inside the fort in bunks and rope beds
Fireplaces in all rooms
Straw ticks (limited qty. available)
One heated modern “break-room” inside the fort
Hot beverages available all weekend long
Dinner provided on Friday night for early arrivals
Meals provided on Saturday (three meals)
Breakfast and lunch provided on Sunday.

We encourage attendees to bring some sort of demo, representative of typical garrison activities of the period. This includes activities like sewing, quilting, candle making, rolling cartridges, etc. We actually made it in the fort schedule this year and should have decent news coverage of the event. It is our sincere hope that we draw a lot more public this year and the years to come.

Due to some new fort policies, $5 per person will be collected to cover costs.  (Editor’s note: Quite a bargain for lodging and meals!)

Please register by emailing Dean Rapp at or calling Dean at 260-417-7619.

Who you would like to room with (Up to 6 in a single room. First come, first served). If you want to bring canvas, you are welcome.
When you might be arriving (so we can get your fire started and have your room toasty and warm when you arrive).
