Join Us for Christmas at Fort Croghan

December 11, 2021

There'll be demonstrations of rural & pioneer skills. We'll have our Plaza of Honor dedication honoring our earliest, dearest Burnet County ancestors. Then we'll host our soup, cornbread & cookies fundraiser. As it gets dark, the luminaries will be lit and the music will begin.
Step back into the past and have fun with us at Christmas at Fort Croghan!

Burnet County Heritage Society at a Glance

Our vision- Connecting the past with the present and the future

The Burnet County Heritage Society is the caretaker of Fort Croghan, an early United States military fort from 1849-1852 that protected the pioneers on the frontier. Our mission is to preserve and promote Burnet County history. We host living history days including Fort Croghan Day in October and Christmas at Fort Croghan in December.
