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 https://www.nps.gov/fosc/index.htm is in Fort Scott, Kansas. Looks like it has restrictions due to COVID-19. You can do a virtual tour of parts of Fort Scotthttps://www.nps.gov/fosc/learn/photosmultimedia/360tours.htm

HOURS & ADMISSION:

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.
