The Friends of Fort Jesup Historic Site, Inc. will be hosting a community planning meeting on Monday April 30 at Fort Jesup Site Historic Site. There will be refreshments from 5:30-6 pm and the meeting will begin at 6 pm. The purpose of this meeting is to get input from community members on what improvements and events they would like to see at Fort Jesup State Historic Site and to begin planning for the 200th Anniversary of the end of “No Man’s Land” in 2019 and the 200th Anniversary of the founding of Fort Jesup in 2022.
Currently, Fort Jesup State Historic Site is on “caretaker” status and is only open by appointment. The Friends of Fort Jesup, Inc., are a group of concerned citizens who are working with the Louisiana Office of State Parks to preserve Fort Jesup and to open the site to the public several weekends throughout the year. The Friends of Fort Jesup, Inc. meet on the third Monday of each month at 5:30 pm at Fort Jesup State Historic Site . For more information, to join the group, or to make a donation please contact Scott DeBose at 318-461-5376 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
