Historic Cemetery Walk
Thanks to everyone who made the Cemetery Walk on Friday, June 3, such a success!
We saw old friends and met new ones interested in the history of the Fort.
Check this page to keep aware of our next events.
The Fort Sheridan Historical Society was formed to honor, support, educate about, and promote the Fort and its history from the late 1880’s to present.
Our goal is to provide useful information about the Fort and its history to former and current residents and those interested in the history of the Fort and the North Shore. Click here for more information about the Society.
Please explore this site to find much more information about the Fort, its history, and how to best plan and enjoy a visit to the Fort. To encourage further research and sharing of Fort information, please support the Society by Joining.

What 's New on the Site??
Maps, that's what. Navigate over to our Articles and Maps page and spend some time with the various maps you'll find there. Everything from maps of the base the Army produced to a series of 8 maps of the Fort area from the USGS dating from 1928 to current to see how things have changed. Enjoy!
