Nearly 8,000 years of History and more than 3,500 artifacts await you at Fort deBuade Museum. The museum’s collection features Native American objects of the pre-contact Woodland period through the eras of the French, British and Americans of the area. At Fort de Buade Museum you will see history come to life through one of the largest collections of authentic Indian and military artifacts and trade items of this period and region.
