Brought to you by the DuPont Historical Society

Hudson’s Bay Day History Interpreters

Join us Sunday August 20, 2023, from 12 noon until 4 pm at the Clocktower park for demonstrations by History Interpreters from Fort Nisqually Point Defiance who will escort you back in time to the days of the Hudson’s Bay Company in 1855.

DuPont Historical Society interpreters will delight audiences with lessons on spinning wool, blacksmithing, tin smithing, fur trading, cooking; even the games children played.

Special Presentation by the Buffalo Soldiers

All of this and more is free to you and your family. 

You can also walk the original 1843 Hudson’s Bay Fort Nisqually site Sunday afternoon 1:30 pm with historian Drew Crooks.  Learn the layout of the fort, where the people lived and worked.
