BACK to THE 1850s...

Over 150 years ago, the Fort Dodge area was scouted by Dragoons (mounted infantry) and chosen as the perfect spot for a military lookout. Thus, Fort Dodge was born.

Now, in 2018, we remember the Fort's history with our stockade and replica frontier village, featuring original buildings from the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s, including a one room schoolhouse and an original 1850s log cabin. 

Travel back in time and join us in celebrating our town's frontier heritage.

We are a non-profit museum and work hard to keep our museum in great shape. To help us in making history come alive, please consider supporting us.
