Please join us on July 4th! Relive an early celebration of the founding of our country as the staff and volunteers commemorate their independence from Great Britain. Only 38 years have gone by since the founding fathers declared their independence, and young American soldiers and adventurous civilians find themselves at Fort Osage, the most remote of all frontier forts. The Fort's residents take time from their normal daily activities to mark this important milestone with patriotic speeches and musket and cannon salutes.
The Friends have submitted our final paperwork to the IRS for our non profit status. Hopefully that will soon be approved and we can start fundraising for some of the projects we'd like to do.
We've updated the website, adding the current admission fees, calendar of events and some event pages.
We're looking forward to a great year. please come out and support Fort Osage.
The Society of Friends of Fort Osage purchased these garters in the Fete' auction and have been donated to the fort.
They were made by Clarence Warfield and are copied from a pair in the Peabody Museum at Harvard. They were a gift from the Osage to William Clark.
John said that they will be added to the Osage display in the Visitor Center later this fall.
Thank you for continuing to support Fort Osage.
We will post the 2015 Special event calendar as soon as it's available.
