The Fort Sill National Historic Landmark & Museum is a 19th century frontier army post consisting of approximately 50 buildings and the grounds surrounding them.  Fort Sill is perhaps best known as the home of Geronimo during his later years and is also an operating Army military base. 

Fort Sill was founded by General Philip Sheridan during a winter campaign against the Southern Plains tribes in 1869.  The renowned Buffalo Soldiers were stationed at Fort Sill in the 1870s and provided major assistance in the construction of the post.  This African-American regiment was given their nickname by the Indian tribes they fought in honor of their fierceness in battle.  In 1911, Ft. Sill became the home of the U.S. Field Artillery Center and School. Today, the U.S. Field Artillery Museum showcases the history of the cadets who have honed their artillery skills at Fort Sill over the course of a century.

Back in the '60's there was a round horse training pen somewhere just south of the railroad tracks and I'm looking for pictures of that facility, which is no longer there. Thank you.
