Please let us know that you would like to participate! From our Master Plan:
The Fort Hawkins Living History Program will realize that genealogy is as important as archaeology in bringing the fort history alive. Genealogy should be considered one of the greatest examples of living history. The fortís public programming already reflects this connection with the original Fort Factor Jonathan Halstedís descendents now serving on the Fort Hawkins Commission and holding an annual family reunion. Col. Benjamin Hawkins family has also met at the fort, and descendents of Maj. Phillip Cook have volunteered at the fort. Real soldiers and families lived and worked at Fort Hawkins and the study and celebration of these real people add greatly to the story of the real Fort Hawkins.
