Remember the forts you made as a kid? I remember making them with my sisters out of blankets, behind the couch or on our bunk beds, during the winter. Outside, we made them year after year in the deep, long lasting Wisconsin snow. We made forts in huge piles of fallen leaves, in the woods during the summer, and everywhere we played. We were always building ‘forts’.
Children get extremely excited about the possibility of an authentic fort right here at home. The Stanford Elementary 5th grade writing classes, pictured at right, held a “Lincolns for Logs” campaign where they brought their pennies to donate $50 to buy a log for Logan’s Fort.
What a rich and colorful history we have here in Lincoln County. Logan’s Fort was a significant part of the settling of this nation and its western expansion. The state’s other two original forts are up and running bringing hundreds of thousands of tourist dollars and historic and educational activities to their counties every year. Won’t you consider contributing to the construction of the fort? Membership in the Logan’s Fort Foundation is only $10. Be a part of history. Let’s build it!
