Met Todd, a historian and curator for the museum, at a Star Party they hosted on the grounds. Beautiful dark sky area and we could see so many amazing stars and planets! Todd was very hospitable and knowledgeable. The grounds of the museum are beautiful and rich with history. Todd makes effort to share the areas history from multiple perspectives and it sounds like he and the local community have done admirable work in the last 10 years to repair the relationships with local native tribes, honoring their ancestors burial grounds at the Fort and telling their stories. You’ll likely pass on your way in to Crater Lake, definitely stop in. There are also picnic tables with shade that make for a nice lunch or snack spot.

The museum was a disappointment, However, at one time ther original building was of interest according to photo's that were on display. Unfortunately, the original building burnt down.There is an original jail house on the property that I found interesting.

We visited here, and it's just outside of Fort Klamath. Good selection of historical artifacts, mostly from the era of white settlers. You can visit the "jail" and surrounding buildings.

Kevin is a great tour guide and curator. Thanks to him for the substantial historical perspective. And thank you to the Klamath County Museum for taking care of this site. I was taken aback by the place in history the Fort took part in. From the Modoc Indians to the US Army Cavalry and the classy characters...it is all very surreal.
