Happened in on Father's Day. They were having a breakfast with a chuckwagon theme. My son was thrilled with the tent, memorabilia and artillery set up with the breakfast. The movie was well done and informative.

Closed on Tuesdays. How ever you can see the Ruins from the road. Not much to look at. Fort housed the famous Black Cavalry in 1865.
