It was a strange, but secure feeling to be back on a U.S. Military installation again. Had not had that feeling since being discharged in 1967. This fort holds so much history and is full of well maintained vintage buildings. Be sure to see the Buffalo Soldier monument , the museum, and take in the view overlooking the river. Do... More

Fort Leavenworth is by far the most beautiful post we've seen. We love sending group tours to the post to learn about the impact the establishment of the fort had on opening up the west. Our favorite attractions on post are the Buffalo Soldier Monument and the Frontier Army Museum. There's an incredible amount of history there and it's well-preserved.... More

Fort Leavenworth is history alive and imagination gone "wild west"... For every member of the family there is something to see and experience. If you are ever stationed here - welcome home! If not, enjoy the visit as long as you can.

We visited the Post to attend the Fort Leavenworth Military Spouses' Club Holiday Bazaar and took a quick drive around before leaving. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, almost park like. The National Military Cemetery is a somber reminder of the men and women who have served to protect and defend our country. We do plan to return and... More

As the oldest active Army fort west of the Mississippi River, Fot Leavenworth is the hub of historical activity in the American western frontier. Scenic, modern and very friendly.

There is plenty to see at Ft. Leavenworth, but one should arrive well in advance of the time you want to be on the fort in order to get through the front gate. An ID is required and one must wait in line (sometimes 30-45 minutes) in order to enter post. Once you arrive you'll want to see the Buffalo... More

Fort Leavenworth is a beautiful Army installation, and things just keep improving all the time. New housing, road improvements, enlarged Commissary, new community buildings, and child care centers, just to name a few. If you haven't been on this post in a while, come back and drive around. You won't even recognize some areas. The new buildings and additions fit... More

Lots of history! Make sure you go on the self-guided tour of the post. (Info in the museum on post). The houses are beautiful. The USDB is much smaller than expected.
