Living History volunteers provide visitors with a deeper experience at our historical sites. These passionate people share information on what life was like over 140 years ago on the grassy plains.
We are grateful to our local community for all the help they provide. We encourage the development of stewardship for our public lands. The beauty of the landscape is magnified by the support of earnest people who volunteer their time and effort.

Did You Know?
Camp Supply was established in 1868 as a supply depot for U. S. Soldiers. It was from this newly formed camp that Lt. Col. George Armstrong Custer led close to 800 men on a march to punish the Southern Plains Indians for their involvement of raids and attacks on wagon trains, stagecoaches, and settlements. Today the current location of Ft. Supply lies just one mile west of the original camp.
