As usual, great stuff. I’ve never been to Ft. Wayne ‘cept through the lenses of great Detroit area photographers. It’s really very beautiful in these springtime shots. So glad for people like nailhead and the Preservation Ft. Wayne peeps, that they actually care because you know, if it weren’t actually a fortified structure designed to keep people out, it would be more trashed and ashed than it actually is. While I’ve never been in there, I’ve been to the immediate hood and it’s very striking, with the bridge and all. Thx.
I have another FW post coming here, just busy round the house. Ill include the new door construction etc.
I did notice that Nail – and I saw the folks working by the stables near the main road. I also noticed some of the work they are doing on the doors, and surely no original doors were harmed in the process ! Guys were also painting doors on that main barrack building, and talking about how hard it is to meet historical specs, but they do it.
Looks like the ol girl is getting some love lately.
Nailhead, can you clarify the ‘replacing the old doors?’ I applaud your efforts at the Fort but I hope the crew are not removing original doors. Thanks again for posting, I really enjoyed the photos.
Agree, the last pic is great. We did a tour of this place late 09, day after the Mason’s temple visit.
They had a flea market, so it was open and there was a guy giving tours.
I tried a visit way back, and they turned us away, because we didn’t have an appointment or was in a tour group. Can you just drop by?
Nice. Possibly the only part of Detroit where hostile shots have not been fired?
