Fort Klock Season Closing Announcement

As the vibrant colors of autumn adorn the landscape and the crisp fall air settles in, it's time to bid farewell to another wonderful season at Fort Klock. We've had a fantastic year filled with historical explorations, educational adventures, and memorable moments with all of our cherished visitors. As we prepare to close our doors for the season, we invite you to join us for a special event that you won't want to miss!

Closing Date: October 22, 2023

Before we close for the season, mark your calendars for a unique and exciting event on October 21, 2023, from 10 am to 4 pm. We are delighted to host Melanie Sawyer, a remarkable survivalist and a contestant from HISTORY Channel's "Alone" Season 10. Melanie will share her survival skills and recount the incredible experiences she had during her time on the show. This is a rare opportunity to learn from a real-life expert and be inspired by her journey of resilience and self-sufficiency.

Don't Miss Saint Nicholas Day: December 3, 2023

While our regular season may be ending, there's still one more event to look forward to before the year concludes. Join us for the Saint Nicholas Day celebration on December 3, 2023, from noon until 3 pm. It's a special occasion to embrace the spirit of the season and experience the charm of historical traditions, including festive music, delightful treats, and a visit from Saint Nicholas himself. Bring your family and friends to enjoy this heartwarming event as we usher in the holiday season.

Thank You for Your Patronage in 2023

Looking Forward to Spring 2024

As we close the doors for this season, we eagerly anticipate the arrival of spring in 2024. Fort Klock will reopen to welcome you back for more educational and immersive experiences. We can't wait to see you again and continue our shared exploration of history and heritage.

Until then, stay warm, safe, and in good spirits as we embrace the changing seasons.
