Fort Leaton is one of the most southern forts in Texas, and is just east of Presidio. Most of the Fort is in good repair, and efforts are underway to restore it to its original condition. This fort is unusual as it was first built as a trading post by a scoundrel, who capitalized its location as a way stop on the Chihuahuan Trail.
The museum details the cross border history and how the people living on each side of the border were dependent on and related to each other.
Be sure to ask Ranger Dave about people he has met who used to live in the fort. Also, he has a wealth of knowledge of the fort’s construction and the archeological work done there. He loves to tell his informative stories and does so in a most entertaining way.
