Description

This military post was established in 1874 to protect the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribes. Troops from the fort were instrumental in directing an orderly transition from reservations to individual farms, ranches and towns, and were the major force in supervising the Land Run of 1889. It served as two remount depots from 1908 to 1947, when it became an agricultural research station. It also served as a German prisoner of war camp in WWII. Much of the fort has been restored, and several activities are held on the site throughout the year. Over 25 historic structures are listed on the National Register ...

Each year we take our grandkids on a little outing in Oklahoma ages 10 to 22. Our trip must include learning something about Oklahoma. Would Ft Reno be a good place considering their age differences.
