• Fort Richardson Historic State Park

  • The Fort offers visitors a glimpse into the past of Texas.  Come experience the past and pass on our heritage to future generations.  Annual events include the “Trunk or Treat and Ghost Walk” for kids to trick-or-treat through the park from campsite to campsite, the “Battle for Fort Richardson!!!”  Civil War Re-enactment that takes place in November, the “Ghosts” of Christmas Past - when public is invited to observe re-enactors in the historic buildings while they go about their evening routines and celebrate Christmas in an 1870’s cavalry post!  The Fort's largest event, Living History, takes place in April.  Historical re-enactors take us back to the 1860's and 1870's to experience life on the frontier.  This event is open to the general public and is free, but there is still a park entry fee.
