This site is a superb example of frontier forts from its era, including both ruins and restorations. A museum in reconstructed barracks vividly interprets frontier military life. Another feature is a sound re-creation of a 19th-century military parade.
Open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. daily, except national holidays.
On the northern edge of town, the site is located at Texas 17 and Texas 118.
