We love history, so we loved visiting this historical post. Do visit the museum and drive by the wonderfully maintained houses dating back to the 19th century, still being used as military housing.

What a beautiful installation, full of history and charm. Stop by the museum, or take a walk along the bluffs of the Missouri River.
