Old Fort Hays

 We just returned from our trip to Colorado!  Prepare to see tons of vacation photos!  ;-)

First Stop:  Hays, Kansas
 

These photos are from Old Fort Hays.


Click HERE for the museum's link!  Talk about the Wild Wild West!  This town is rich in frontier history and has documented it very well.  There are several plaques throughout downtown noting sites of popular saloons and prominent homes, as well as shootouts.  One of our favorite restaurants is Gella's Diner and Lb Brewing Company on 11th Street in Hays.


While we were touring all the historical buildings of the fort, there was no disk in the camera.

If you like frontier history, it was a very interesting self guided tour.  We love that kind of stuff!

 
 The herd of buffalo were sort of like big puppies!  They came right to the car.  We didn't feed them anything, but they acted like they frequently get treats from tourists!
 
 What is your favorite era of American History?

  1. I have always wanted to go out west! This post just makes me want to go even more. :) I have visited some Civil War battle sites. That has always been super interesting to me.
