This year, guests will arrive during October of 1859. News of the Pig War, taking place on the San Juan Islands, circulates through the Fort while Dr. Tolmie and his family are preparing to leave Fort Nisqually for Vancouver Island. Visitors will encounter gentlemen and their wives, American settler families, experienced trappers, Scottish and French-Canadian laborers, young people at a dance, blacksmiths working at the forge, clerks in the sale shop, and cooks in the kitchen.

Walking tours are approximately an hour in length and begin every 15 minutes.
