Because of you -- the Fort Scott National Historic Site was selected as one of the 8 Wonders of Kansas History (to see the others -- visit the Friends of the Fort website)
We love our Fort -- it was what founded our little town and we are proud that in the 70's it became a National Historic Site and was reconstructed and restored. It is a great place to visit on Summer Sundays -- walking around the Fort, feeling that you're part of history, realizing all that happened on those grounds over the last 168 years.
We're an old town for Kansas -- most of Kansas being settled after the civil war. And as you leave the Fort, you see our historic downtown which recently was named to the National Register of Historic Places.
Fort Scot is a great place to roam on Summer Sundays!
It's blue skies over our Fort. And I'm asking for your help.
