This was a small fort that was fun and very well done. It only cost 6.00 dollars to get in. Toured for about an hour or so. Interesting to learn about life in the 1800's. Has a little gift shop for those post cards etc.

Visited on Caspar Collins day. Many special exhibits on this day. Free admission also. Reconstructed buildings helps to understand what frontier service life was like.

There are interesting historic artifacts in the museum area and a reconstructed fort to tour. The museum also has a good gift and book shop. Kids will enjoy this stop.

Not to be missed this historical site gives one an overview of life during the mid 1800s. Interesting landmark to appreciate what transpired during that period.
