Fort Stanton After Dark!

At Fort Stanton Historic Site
10/26/19, Saturday
6:00pm

Join us on Friday October, 26th, 2019 for a one-of-a-kind chance to explore the grounds and buildings of Fort Stanton after dark while interacting with costumed living historians, storytellers, and investigators from the Lincoln County Paranormal Historical Society. Fort Stanton’s contribution to the history of New Mexico is unparalleled and during its 160 years in operation it served as an Army post, tuberculosis sanatorium, internment camp, and correctional facility. Although the gates are open every day for visitors, few get to experience the fort after dark. The self-guided tours will begin at 6pm and end at 9pm. Cost is $5 per person, kids under 10 are free. All proceeds support ongoing preservation efforts at the Fort Stanton Historic Site through the Museum of New Mexico Foundation and Fort Stanton, Inc. Please call (575) 354-0341 to RSVP for the event.
