Book a Guided Tour
School groups who can not attend one of our formal education programs may opt to take a guided tour of the site led by a ranger or a volunteer. Guided tours generally take about an hour. While there are eleven buildings open to the public, generally plan on visiting only four or five of them on your tour.

From 1869-73, soldiers were stationed near Fort Scott to protect a railroad being built through this area. Soldiers fought squatters who had formed an armed resistance to the railroad. This was one of few times in U.S. history that the army took up arms against civilians.
