MAKE YOUR NEW VISITOR'S CENTER A REALITY!

WELCOME

Welcome to the Friends of Fort Fisher website. Here, history buffs, civil war fans, aficionados of artillery fire and cannon fodder, lovers of the Carolina coast and those seeking a great family fun venue, gather to support the efforts to preserve this terrific piece of our past.

SMALL ARMS RAFFLE

The Friends of Fort Fisher Small Arms Raffle is providing a unique opportunity for Civil War weapons enthusiasts and black powder shooters. This year’s raffle features a set of Civil War reproduction revolvers - the Colt “Army" Model 1860 and the Remington New Model Army. In addition to the revolvers, this raffle comes in a custom handcrafted wooden display case, with a powder flask, a brass .44 caliber bullet mold, and a brass container for caps (caps not included).

Events at Fort Fisher are made possible by the Friends of Fort Fisher and its membership, as well as through the generous support from the towns of Carolina Beach and Kure Beach.

Make Your New Visitor's Center a Reality!

Last year over 900,000 people visited the Fort Fisher State Historic Site property! That's local families, school groups, military groups, retirement groups, Jr. ROTC, Boys/Girls Club Summer Camp, YMCA Summer Camp, tourists and more!  When the Visitor's Center was built back in the mid-1960's, it was originally intended to accommodate 25,000 people annually. We’ve far outgrown our capacity. With your help, we will build a larger, updated facility more worthy of the history it represents and the visitors it attracts.
