Visitors will also be able to see progress on the reconstructed fort, which will open this fall.

The program will run 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A $6 per student fee applies -- adults are free. Pre-registration is requested by contacting scott.douglas@ncdcr.gov or (704) 873-5882. Fort Dobbs is within the Division of State Historic Sites in the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
