Fort Meigs

Ohio's War of 1812 Battlefield

Garrison Ghost Walk

Oct. 17-18 & 24-25, 2014

Frightfully Fun

Come to Fort Meigs for a "spirited" stroll this fall at the Garrison Ghost Walk. Tour the fort with your 1812 guide and encounter the spookier side of this historic place. The whole family will enjoy hearing tales from the past, and while the ghosts may not be real, the fun certainly is! Proceeds from this event go to the Old Northwest Military History Association. Reservations are required.

Each summer during the fort's living history encampments, strange lights and sounds, along with the appearance of soldiers long dead have been reported by staff, volunteers, and visiting participants. These phenomenal occurrences have never been accounted for or explained...
