Gene Stratton-Porter State Historic Site map


The site’s naturalist will lead visitors through Sower’s Woods to introduce them to the creatures of the night! Bats, owls, moths and other critters may make an appearance. Depending upon the clarity of the sky, star gazing will then give attendees the opportunity to learn how to identify major constellations, satellites and other celestial bodies by telescope, courtesy of the Fort Wayne Astronomical Society. Visitors are invited to bring binoculars for a closer view of the stars.

Tickets are $4 per person and can be purchased on-site.
