This year’s tour theme is music. Just like today, music was an important form of entertainment for the solders, officers and their families at frontier Army posts like Fort Larned. Whether it was someone playing an instrument for others to listen to, or people singing along, it helped while away the off-duty hours for everyone. The tour vignettes will highlight different ways that people used music to entertain themselves.
The tour will be on October 14th with reservations beginning on October 2nd at 8:30 am. Reservations can only be made by phone at 620-285-6911.

Each tour has space for 20 people and reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
