Ft. St. Pierre is currently
patrolled by local law enforcement,
but it takes us all
to protect the important historic resource.
Our volunteer security subcommittee
consists of local citizens who have committed to keep
watch over Fort St. Pierre. Periodically, our
volunteers look for persons involved in criminal
activities as explicitly described in the
Mississippi Antiquities Act, e.g. observed digging,
metal detection, artifact collection, vandalism, dumping
or other criminal activities
Both the privately owned land and the state owned
portion of the Fort are under random, periodic
Volunteers report observed criminal
activity to the appropriate authorities and adjacent
Each volunteer is provided copies
of the Mississippi Antiquities Act, contact information
for adjacent landowners and the Mississippi Department
of Transportation, as well as detailed maps and air
photos of both the privately owned and state owned
parcels that are parts of the National Historic Landmark
In the interest of site protection,
we do not provide site location information outside of
our security team.
If you live or work in the area and
frequently pass by Ft. St. Pierre, we would love to have
you join our volunteers keeping an eye of Ft. St.
To report suspicious activity,
please call 911.
