This site has so much historical significance. There are 14 remaining buildings but only 3 are open to see. A tractor ride along the grounds will take you past others with a tour guide. Unfortunately this site is very limited to what it offers to...More

Unfortunately, there isn't much of interest here for the average traveler, or even someone with a moderate interest in western history.

Very cool place to visit but was disappointed in the guide. The guide was an old fellow who was not very suitable for leading a tour around a large site. The site itself was very interesting. Not able to go to every place because some...More

We were delighted with our visit here. We saw the fort complex at a nice, leisurely pace since we had the time for it and our guide, Scott, was more than willing to indulge our curiousity. He took the time to go over anything and...More

We had too little time to see the very large site, but the guide (Scott) did a great job sharing stories about the Buffalo Soldiers (afro-americans) stationed there and the entire era when this fort was active.More

Sharon, I wish we had a way to condense the high points when people are pressed for time. Instead our site seems to spawn a thousand wonderful conversations about America's past, present and future--great intellectual fodder, but not a 15 minute stop. Thanks for visiting!...More

Fort Assinniboine was an active Army post a bit more than 100 years ago. Sadly, much of it is gone due to what the guide called cannibalizing (old buildings being torn apart for building materials). It's history is very interesting. General Pershing commanded his Buffalo...More

A good look at mid west history despite negligible funding from any level of the US government. The guide, Scott, is extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant, and his efforts make up for the lack of buildings left. Part of the Old Fort Trail, it needs...More

I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. In a perfect world government might do all historical preservation. But what if they got some of it wrong? Two advantages groups of passionate volunteers and donors enjoy are autonomy and intellectual freedom. While more money would be nice,...More

This Army fort was only in operation for 32 years. Today it's part of an agricultural station. Though a lot of the old post was demolished, the history and the existing buildings are quite fascinating. Here's an unsung slice of American history ripe for the...More
