  • What an amazing place! It is like being transported in time. Want to get the feel of a real cavalry post? Here it is!
  • Lovely grounds off the beaten path. 9 buildings, butterfly garden, 10 minute video on the history of the fort. Great staff, especially Mary. Very knowledgeable and interested in the visitors who come to the historical site. Inexpensive admission. Worth going a bit out of the way to visit.
