About us

Fort Stanton, Inc. (FSI) is a nonprofit corporation (501-c-3) founded in 1997 to help preserve this national treasure and to seek its adaptive reconstruction as a living history center. Our Mission is not only to preserve the physical artifacts of an earlier time, but also to grant visitors a deeper understanding of those who have gone before us and helped make us who we are today.

FSI succeeded in mobilizing public opinion and convincing the State Legislature to preserve the Fort and appropriate the first funds for its renovation. Fort Stanton, Inc. also won substantial grants to begin reconstruction of the historic buildings.  On August 9, 2007, Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish proclaimed the establishment of the Fort Stanton State Monument.

Your donations are tax deductible according to IRS rules. Membership is open to any interested person who wishes to support the Fort.

The Museum is available for group and school tours, educational programs, weddings & parties, corporate events, facility rentals, and more.
