  • Fort Nisqually Living History Museum

    This weekend, they did an reenactment of the period between 1833-1869 at the Fort Nisqually Living History Museum in Point Defiance Park.

















    This weekend, more than 100 history enthusiasts from around the Northwest are camped out at the Fort Nisqually Living History Museum in Point Defiance Park.They’re recreating a “brigade encampment,” a time when the mountain men came in from the wild, turned in their pelts to the Hudson’s Bay Company and got down to some serious partying.
    The re-enactors, in their homespun shirts, leather leggings and sweat-stained hats, are playing it to the hilt.
    They’ve set up about 50 canvas tents just outside the fort walls and are living in 19th century style – squinting in campfire smoke, roasting meat on spits and demonstrating an array of nearly forgotten skills of the era: tanning skins, spinning wool, churning butter and working with hand tools.

    Fort Nisqually Living History Museum

    Built in 1833, Fort Nisqually was the first European settlement on Puget Sound, and it was a Hudson's Bay Company trading post that operated between the years 1833 and 1869. The original site was located above the Nisqually River delta in the present town of DuPont, Washington. Today Fort Nisqually is located inside Tacoma's Point Defiance Park.
