Promises made and broken! A town attacked at dawn! Thousands made homeless by war! Soldiers fighting settlers! Each of these stories is a link in the chain of events that encircled Fort Scott from 1842-1873. All of the site's structures, its parade ground, and its tallgrass prairie bear witness to this era when the country was forged from a young republic into a united transcontinental nation.

Historical structure and history of The Fort when it was operating but it offers many flavors of history thru out the whole year

"We don't walk on grass," scolded the ranger. They admit that they don't have much visitors. I wonder why? Most buildings are not original and the ranger giving the tour didn't know answers to basic questions. You'd think with all the down time, they'd know the ins and outs of the fort. Nope. It wasn't an educational tour, just a waste of time. I could have learned more walking around myself and reading the signs.
