Fort Lancaster State Historic Site will come alive with history, soldiers, and settlers during the free annual Western Frontier Days, Friday, May 19, and Saturday, May 20, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Visitors can see what early frontier life was like in Texas. Living history interpreters and reenactors will represent all aspects of Fort Lancaster’s history, including: U.S. soldiers, pioneers, army laundresses, Texas Confederates, farm animals, Buffalo Soldiers, settler families, camels, and much more.

Visitors can talk with soldiers, see early settlers and wander through the ruins imagining the once-impressive fort buildings including the barracks, stables, blacksmith shop, and hospital.
