We found this to be an good history of the area and worth the short visit. The on going restoration gives a good idea of what the fort was like.

This looks like a work in progress. There are a few buildings remaining from the original fort, and a few identified by rocks where the foundations used to be. It has reader boards with some interesting information. Expect to walk, the buildings are well-spaced.

It's located next to the Texas Rangers Center so it's easy to visit both at the same time. It takes 30 minutes to an hour to see all the buildings in the fort.

There is no charge to visit Fort Martin Scott. However, if you would like to leave a donation, they would be very happy to accept. All donations benefit the fort only. I don't know when you are planning to visit, but they... More
