Fort Belknap

in Exhibit

Fort Belknap was established in 1851 as a northern anchor on the Texas frontier line of defense. The garrison safeguarded travelers along a network of frontier trails, most notably the Butterfield Overland Mail route. Used by federal and confederate troops through the 1860's. A handful of buildings remain in the park-like setting, and a museum in the old commissary chronicles frontier history.
