Why is it Called Fool Hardy History?

Fool Hardy History kicks off spring events at the History Center.  But why is it called Fool Hardy History?

On Saturday, April 2, the History Center, 302 East Berry, Fort Wayne, will host its annual edition of Fool Hardy History from 2 to 4 p.m.

Fool Hardy History is a hands-on trivia game held each year on the Saturday closest to April Fool’s Day and challenges the public to identify unusual or mystifying artifacts from the collection owned by the museum. This is an event that calls for some knowledge of the past but often depends more on vivid imagination aided by an occasional lucky guess.  Get your friends together and meet at the History Center in downtown Fort Wayne to see how smart or lucky they are!

Prizes are given to the adult and the student with the most correct answers.
