Efforts to preserve the Fort will continue
May 26, 2022
The “Future of the Fort” article in the CVN’s May 12th issue was an excellent example of thorough investigative reporting. Haines is lucky to have such a comprehensive news source. While it is difficult to have your personal news on display for the community, it is sometimes necessary to expose the need for assistance in protecting one of the many significant aspects of Haines. The future of the Parade Grounds will affect more than just Fort Seward. The Fort is the postcard image of Haines and sets it apart from other communities in Alaska. We will continue our efforts to protect, preserve, and restore Fort Seward. Now is a more crucial time than ever for the community to express its support for the preservation of the Parade Grounds as a singular, open, public space.
