Volunteers make Fort Belmont great!

Thank you to all our board members and volunteers for your time and effort in 2015! You ARE appreciated! Fort Belmont is looking for more people to help in the coming year. We have various projects and opportunities for all ages. Are you interested in preserving the history and sharing the stories of early days in Jackson County? It takes the talents of many to keep the Fort open and ready for visitors throughout the summer season. The Fort is a great asset for our community of Jackson. Please consider volunteering this year. Contact a Fort board member, the Jackson Chamber of Commerce or send us an email. Whether you have a little time or lots of time, we would really appreciate hearing from you.
