"When I was a kid we used to come out here and go through the escape tunnel."
The big barn that you may remember was actually the two barracks buildings that had been joined together. We have restored the barracks back their original configuration.
The fort was used as a ranch for over 80 years, from 1885 – 1966.
The Frizell family owned the fort for 64 years, 1902 – 1966. From 1885 to 1902 it was owned by the Pawnee Valley Stockbreeder's Association.
The Frizells lived in the Commanding Officer's House and the farm hands and families lived in the Company Officer's Quarters.
