The Historic Fort Wayne Coalition is dedicated to preserving the history of Michigan men and women who served their country between 1845 and 1973 who either sent material to or personally passed through Historic Fort Wayne as a place of induction to United States military service. They assist the Fort's caretakers, the City of Detroit Recreation Department, with this effort in two major ways. First, they present high quality events that provide ways for the public to enjoy Historic Fort Wayne and see glimpses of how it would have looked when it was garrisoned. They also preserve and restore as much of the structures and facilities as possible on the Fort grounds.
