Fort Smith National Historic Site

From the establishment of the first Fort Smith on December 25,1817 to the final days of Judge Isaac C. Parker's jurisdiction over Indian Territory in 1896. Fort Smith National Historic Site preserves almost 80 years of history. 

Explore life on the edge of Indian Territory through the stories of soldiers, the Trail of Tears, dangerous outlaws, and the brave lawmen who pursued them.

The visitor center has evolved over time. Beginning in 1846 it was the enlisted men's barracks and dining hall. In 1872, it was converted to a courthouse and jail. A second more modern jail was built in 1888. The last major change occurred between 1996-2000 when the buildings were renovated and exhibits added making the building accessible to all visitors. The visitor center helps tell the story of Fort Smith from 1817 to 1896.

Open daily except New Year's Day, Thanksgiving, & Christmas. Great museum, cemetery, grounds (bring a picnic lunch), and much more!
