On Saturday, September 24, 2016 Fort Osage Volunteers demonstrated how early French settlers lived at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers in the late 1700's. Our Volunteers also participated in the annual Buckner Parade in Buckner, Missouri.
The Society of Friends of Fort Osage would like to thank all of the volunteers who came out to support Fort Osage this past weekend. We would also like to thank the volunteers from Fort de Chartres State Historic Site, in Prairie Du Rocher, Illinois, who came out to give our visitors a French Artillery demonstration.
Explore how early French settlers lived at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers in the late 1700s. Re-enactors will interpret everyday life skills common on the frontier. Artisans will display custom made wares, both decorative and utilitarian, which were essential to these early settlers.
