I have been planning to visit this place for some time. I am glad I finally got around to it. A nice little museum, and I was able to wander around the grounds of the Fort. The folks were helpful and friendly. Also, Do not miss the US Cavelry Association Museum next door.
They need to update their address so it is easy to find using GPS. The buildings are really cool and they have opportunity for a really cool historical marker but it is not executed well. They rely too much on photos instead of exhibits that bring the information home. I honestly felt bad for the guy working there; he seemed... 更多
Fort Reno is just outside El Reno Oklahoma and has a fascinating history. Begun in 1874 and served to control the Indians before statehood. It also served a purpose before and during WW 2 supplying horses and mules to the military. Even a German POW camp in the 40's. Most of the buildings are gone but they have started to... 更多
There is a lot of open areas would be perfect for school trips or other group outings. Lots to see to look in each building would take at least a 1/2 day.
Who knew fort Reno was such a great place. We enjoyed our visit. Very interesting learning about the Calvary and some very important horses were trained there. The chapel was beautiful and was built by German POWS. The cemetery and the visitors center were easy access.
We just happened upon this Fort. We got there late no time to really enjoy it all, We do want to go back. We spoke with Sarah, she was very informative of it all. We will go back when we are in the area.
Wife and I headed out from OKC, took Route 66 out through Yukon which was a nice little ride. Fort is not far from I-40. There are 3 buildings that you can tour as of right now, was told more are being redone and updated. The main museum, had information about the fort, which was mainly Calvary from Indian wars... 更多
Arrived early on a Sunday morning and seemed to be the only visitors. Both buildings at Ft Reno are packed with photos, artifacts and written information in various forms. It appears that many people who had ties with the Fort have shared their treasures. In addition, the building are well preserved and add to the perspective of how life was... 更多
Stopped off while doing route 66. Definitely interesting with the history of the fort as well as that of the US Cavalry. All the staff where really helpful, the Chapel (which was in part built by WW2 German and Italian Prisoners of war) is really unique. The cemetery is a real trip down memory lane, when you see most of... 更多
