Friends of Fort Malden

Friends of Fort Malden seeking new members

The Friends of Fort Malden is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with Parks Canada to preserve and promote the heritage of Fort Malden Historical Site and the value of local history. Through special events, the Friends of Fort Malden generate awareness and funding to support summer student employment at Fort Malden as well as other local historic programs.

We are seeking to increase our membership to continue our important mission of supporting the rich local history found here in Amherstburg Ontario.

Local historical gems found here locally like Fort Malden NHS and Park House Museum are organizations we are trying to promote. Most recently we are doing a cross promotion contest offering a Lantern made at Park House Tin Smith Shop to one lucky winner.

The Friends of Fort Malden, in cooperation with Park House, is excited to announce our 2018 membership campaign drive. How would you like to win this extraordinary “Star” Lantern? This lantern is made locally by a talented Tin Smith at the Park House Museum Tin Shop here in Amherstburg Canada? This handsome fully functional Lantern measures 13″ Tall X 4.5″ X 4.5″ and retails for $95 CDN.

This is an exceptional prize to “Get-Involved” and have “History Start with you!” Please stop by the Park House Museum to see this fantastic Lantern.

They are located at 214 Dalhousie St. in Amherstburg.
