“see history come alive”

People claim that most of the strange paranormal activity going on at Fort Wayne happens at 1:20 a.m... and no one know why. There have been sightings of spectral soldiers wandering around the fort's 96 acres, while visitors claim to hear the sound of mysterious footsteps and voices from beyond the grave. Fort volunteers report that display items have a history of disappearing and reappearing weeks later. Fort Wayne is the last Native American burial mound in the city, and according to many, is haunted by the ghost of the "Yam-Ko-Desh", also known as "the Mound Builders." In order to help the newly departed pass on, they would walk back and forth in a nearby creek until the ghosts passed over to the spirit world. - Roadtrippers "Beginning in 1948, the Fort was given to the City of Detroit in parcels. Over the next 28 years, the City would come to own the entire reservation with the exception of nine acres still occupied by the Army Corps of Engineers. Today you can visit the original 1848 limestone barracks building, 1845 Star Fort which was renovated in 1861, the restored Commanding Officers house, Spanish American War guard house and the Tuskegee Airmen Museum. Today Fort Wayne is coming back to prominence and the preservation is underway. The historic fort is featured in the Haunted Historic Fort Wayne Tour and has been featured on several TV shows." -
