This fort was in a great tree-lined meadow in the 1800s,
but today you see the freeway from the porch of the Captain's house.
It's the building in the back.
The barracks is the original building,
with a little restoration.
Inside the barracks you can see what it was like for the soldiers.
No beds, just these rolled mattresses.
I loved this handmade sewing kit.
And of course I noticed the quilts,
but I'm not sure the patterns fit the timeline of 1854-1864.
