Elaine Evans 0 559 Article rating: 5.0

Join us as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fort de Chartres as a state park by rededicating the bronze plague presented to the Fort on October 10, 1919 by the Illinois Chapter of Colonial Dames. In addition to the rededication ceremony, there will be 1920s era music and an antique automobile demonstration. A collection of vintage material, photos and documents from the first 100 years of the park's history will be on display and reenactors dressed in early 20th century clothing will be on the grounds.
