Speaker Series starts this Wednesday!

Hi everyone,

Please take the time to consider attending one of our upcoming Lecture Series events. These begin Wednesday, July 20th at 7:30, and continue for the three following Wednesdays at the Niles District Library. This week's speaker is Dr. José António Brandão, the Chair and Professor of History at Western Michigan University. His talk will focus on the relation between the French and the fur trade in Michigan. Please click the image below to be able to zoom-in on the details. Support the Fort will be providing snacks!

Also please check out this press release from the Michigan Humanities Council (MHC). This year the MHC awarded the Fort St. Joseph Archaeology Project a grant of $10,175 in support of our Open House event on August 13th and 14th that will showcase excavations, historical interpreters, and more! This grant certainly has been an excellent boon to the project.

Tomorrow we are back at the Fort Site. It is going to be a hot week, but hopefully one full of great finds. I hope to see you all at the talk on Wednesday; please be in touch if you have any questions about the speaker events.
