Fort Caspar Museum and its support group, the Fort Caspar Museum Association, in conjunction with the 11th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry Re-enacting Group, invite you to enjoy a favorite local tradition this summer with “Caspar Collins Day at the Fort.” 

Join us on Saturday, July 22nd from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm as we commemorate Casper’s namesake.  Enjoy living history demonstrations and hands-on activities.  All are welcome to this FREE event.  Click HERE for a schedule of planned events.

 

Interact with 19th-century characters including cavalry and infantry soldiers, pioneers, and frontiersmen.  Watch firearm demonstrations and mounted cavalry drills, pull handcarts, and try toys and games popular 150 years ago.  Stroll through our vendor mart and purchase crafts and food items.  This year’s event will also include a baseball game between soldiers and visitors, a scavenger hunt, and craft making activities for kids.

 

At the end of the day, we will mark the 150th anniversary of the closing of old Fort Casper in 1867 with a lowering of the flag, as the army departs and troops are relocated to newly-established Fort Fetterman.
