The interior courtyard of the fort.
Half hour guided tours are offered through the ten main rooms of the fort, all tastefull preserved with period furnishings. You will notice that all of the doors and windows open into a central courtyard, and the entire fort was enclosed by a high wall.
Geese and horse
The resident geese rule the roost at two ponds on the premises. Other animals include Texas longhorn cattle, chickens and horses.
Allison at piano
My oldest daughter, Allison, found a piano, sat down and started playing from the old hymnal on the instrument. Surprisingly, no one objected.
Take the path through the gardens to some of the other buildings - a blacksmith shop, poultry and riding sheds, and a corral.
Volunteers in period costume provide interesting and colorful commentary regarding life on the rugged frontier. Here, my daughters watch with fascination as a lady demonstrates how the loom works.
