The Garrison Ladies are busying themselves perusing the latest fashion catalogs in the commanding officer's quarters. They certainly don't want to find themselves behind the current trends.
Discover what life was like for 19th century soldiers during our monthly Living History Encampment at Fort Stanton held on the third Saturday of each month.
Garrison at Work
Planting a garden at Fort Stanton.
On Garrison Days, we've had rain, snow, wind, sunshine, tasty food and two new members; Tim, our regional manager and Tiffanie, our educational coordinator. It's a great day to come see us!
Garrison Soldiers from the fort began gathering some of the crook neck squash that was ready to pick. Also ready was some loose leaf cabbage. You can also see the 'fruits' of 10 pounds of pinto beans planted by our visiting school students last spring.
