"Fort Osage still looks like a..." Fort Osage Tip by brdwtchr

Fort Osage, Kansas City: 3 reviews and 6 photos


Fort Osage still looks like a frontier out post with a log stockade, cabins, and guard towers. It is listed as part of the KC metro area but it took me half an hour driving to get there once I left Independence. It is a pleasant drive and the fort looks great. I say it looks great because when I got there it was closed. I was there on a Tuesday and it is open on Wednesday through Sundays. I got to walk around and look at it but that was all.
