Join us as we go back in time to view our area history.

Come experience the early 1800s from authentic fur trappers, spinsters, settlers and Buffalo Soldiers. Fort Sherman was commissioned in 1838 and was essential to the founding of local communities, such as Mount Pleasant, Pittsburg, Mount Vernon and Winnsboro. This event is good for all ages, so bring the whole family out to sit by the campfire and learn about the beginnings of East Texas as we know it today. The schedule will include various demonstrations, a ranger-led historical hike, and a cemetery tour.

Entry fees into the park are $4.00 for anyone 13 and older, and children 12 and under are free.
