A historic adobe fort that was in service from 1858 to 1883 to keep the peace between local natives and new settlers. It was garrisoned by one company of infantry and one company of cavalry while it operated. This fort was once commanded by Kit Carson and "Buffalo Soldiers" served here from 1876 to 1879 so it has a rich history that is well depicted within the 5 original buildings and reproductions of other buildings that were built by the museum. Many dioramas, period equipment, pictures, and information can be seen on a self-guided tour of the post.
