Museum’s Candlelight Stroll tickets available Tuesday

FORT SILL, Okla_The Fort Sill National Historic Landmark Museum's annual Candlelight Stroll will take place on Sunday, Dec. 9.  The event is free and open to the public.  Tickets are required and will be available for pick up from the Museum Interpretative Center beginning Tuesday, Nov. 27.  This year tickets will not be mailed. 

The annual Candlelight Stroll explores the 1870s Army post.  The National Historic Landmark boasts 37 buildings dating from the 19th century which comprise the most complete frontier fort in existence from the Indian Wars period.

The tour begins and ends at the Museum Interpretive Center, building 435, which is located on the southeast corner of the Old Post Quadrangle. Refreshments will be served to the participants and the Post Trader Gift Shop will be open during the event.

Volunteers will escort groups by candlelight around the old Quadrangle visiting four locations; the Chapel, Sherman House, the Cavalry Barracks, and Guardhouse.  Special interpreters, including "Buffalo Soldiers," Deputy U.S. Marshals, and pioneer women of the day, will present the history at each location.  Artillery, Infantry and Cavalry soldiers from the late 1800's will also be present.  The first Post Commander and his wife, Col. and Mrs. Benjamin Grierson, will be present to welcome everyone at Sherman House.

The Interpretive Center will open at 5 p.m. with tours beginning every 15 minutes from 5:30 to 7 p.m.   Each tour of about 25 people will last one hour.  Tickets are free and will be marked according to the tour time.  Participants must be able to walk at a brisk pace and climb stairs.

This is rare opportunity to see the historic old fort by candlelight and experience the past in a rather unique way.  For more information, or to obtain tickets, contact the Museum Interpretative Center, 435 NW Quanah Road, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., (580) 442-5123.
