Rescheduled!  Due to the federal government shutdown, the tours--originally scheduled for Saturday, October 12, have been resecheduled for Saturday, November 16! 

A not-to-miss event!  On Saturday, November 16, 2013 the public is invited to participate in guided tours at Fort Davis National Historic Site after hours and by lantern light.

 The twenty-person tours begin at 6:00 pm and start every half hour.  The last tour begins at 8:20 pm.   Each tour lasts an hour.  On a tour, encounter living history characters from the past in scenes based on historical events at the fort.  Visitors step back in time to when Fort Davis was an active 1880’s military post.

Reservations are highly recommended and are currently being accepted.  Call 432-426-3224, ext. 226.  Tours are free, but donations will be accepted for the park’s living history programs.  Wear comfortable shoes to walk about a mile.  Visitors needing assistance maneuvering around the Fort are encouraged to join us for the first 3 tour times while there is still some daylight.  More information is available at the website:
