Fort Scott National Historic Site, Fort Scott – Kansas Tuesdays October 20, 2020

I decided to focus on Bourbon County, Kansas for this week’s Kansas Tuesdays post. The Fort Scott National Historic Site is in Fort Scott, Kansas. Looks like it has restrictions due to COVID-19. You can do a virtual tour of parts of Fort Scott



Normal Hours:

Park Visitor Center and historic building hours listed under ‘Visitor Centers’. Visitors may walk the park grounds, walkways and parking lot from ½ hour before sunrise until ½ hour after sunset, except during periods of snow, ice or other inclement weather conditions that make the grounds unsafe. Appears that some buildings are open 8 A. M. – 5 P. M. for summer hours; winters hours start half hour later and end half hour earlier.

Seasonal and holiday exceptions:
