Visit The Fort Museum and Frontier Village! Feel as if you’ve strolled into the past on the Frontier Village Lane with a collection of original and replica buildings ranging from an 1855 log home, small town jail, one room school house, land office, print shop, blacksmith shop, general store, chapel, livery stable and drug store. The Frontier Village showcases the growth of a small pioneer village where each building is furnished with an extensive collection of original fixtures and artifacts.
Make your way into the pre-Civil War era fort replica and explore original cabins; climb into the blockhouse and be on lookout for intruders; patrol the stockade and avoid the Punishment Horse; discover heirlooms of the first settlers; and marvel at the Cardiff Giant – 19th century’s biggest hoax!
