Candlelight Tour 2016


Campfires and candlelight provide illumination for this magical evening walking tour of Fort Nisqually Living History Museum. Guests may eavesdrop as more than a hundred re-enactors bring to life the men and women of the Hudson’s Bay Company. The people from the past won’t be aware of their 21st century visitors. This year, guests will arrive during October of 1859. Many of the Fort’s residents will be saying goodbye to the Fort’s manager, Dr. Tolmie, as he and his family prepare to move to Victoria, B.C. Visitor’s will encounter gentlemen their wives, American settler families, experienced trappers, Scottish and French-Canadian laborers and their families, young people at a dance, blacksmiths working at the forge, clerks in the sale shop, and cooks in the kitchen. Advance ticket purchase is required. Tickets go on sale September 1.
