Pawnee Indian Museum - Frontier Forts of Kansas

The presence of military forts in what is now Kansas changed the West forever. The forts provided protection for settlers, traders, and the railroads. The forts also brought about the removal of the Plains Indians. This presentation will focus on Kansas military forts, large and small, and their interactions with the Indians.

Pawnee Indian Museum State Historic Site is located at 480 Pawnee Trail, eight miles north of U.S. 36 on K-266 near Republic. For more information call 785-361-2255.
