This U.S. Army frontier post was part of the history of the Indian Wars along the Santa Fe Trail from 1859 to 1878. The national historic site preserves the fort's barracks, shops, officers' quarters and supply warehouses and shares stories of the conflicts with Native American tribes of the Great Plains during this period. Today, visitors can experience living history with reenactments, educational programs, weapons demonstrations and ranger-guided tours of this well-preserved site.
