About this Event
Fort Nisqually was originally established by the Hudson’s Bay Company on the traditional lands of the Nisqually people. Today, it is located on the traditional lands of the Puyallup people.

How did a series of seemingly unrelated events across a century of time all conspire to move Fort Nisqually from what is now the town of DuPont to Point Defiance Park? Maybe it’s all because Letitia Work fell in love.

Join Fort historian Jerry Eckrom to learn the story behind this move.

Suggested (adult) drink pairing: Rusty Nail. Mix 1/2 oz. Drambuie and 2 oz. Scotch whisky. Serve in an old-fashioned glass on the rocks or neat.

Bring your queries: Questions are encouraged throughout the session (via text chat)!

Tiered pricing allows you to choose a ticket price that works for you! Preregistration required. Ticket sales end 15 minutes prior to session start time.

A link to join will be sent to ticket holders about 10 minutes prior to event start time.
