Candlelight Tour


Campfires and candlelight provide illumination for this magical evening walking tour of Fort Nisqually Living History Museum.

This year, guests will arrive during October of 1855. Many of the Fort’s residents will celebrating the promotion of Dr. Tolmie to chief factor, and visitor’s will encounter gentlemen and 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.
