Full Moon Fort with Lantern Tours

Guided Lantern Tours at Fort Phil Kearny will illuminate the darker side of the Fort and the contested “Bloody Bozeman”. Visitors can expect to hear fun facts and “grisly” details related to the daily lives of Natives and Soldiers near the “hated Fort on Buffalo Creek.”

Visitors bringing young people are encouraged to attend earlier tours from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  Later tours, from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. are aimed at an audience aged 14 to adult. The later tour discusses issues such as disease, burials and reinterrment of soldiers in more detail and may not be appropriate for younger participants.

“We don’t have to make anything up to create good narratives. Fort Phil Kearny was an incredibly dramatic – and terrifying- place to be in 1866 and 1867,” Site Superintendent Misty Stoll said.

For announcements and more information visit Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site on Facebook and at FortPhilKearny.com.

Fort Phil Kearny State History Site is open Wednesday through Sunday 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
