Fort Garland

Fort Garland Museum & Cultural Center

Fort Garland was once commanded by legendary frontiersman Kit Carson and had a garrison of over 100 men who served to protect the earliest settlers in the San Luis Valley. Tour original adobe buildings on the grounds and view excellent exhibits on how the fort was saved and preserved. And, don’t miss the Infantry and cavalry barracks exhibits, an exhibit on the Buffalo Soldiers and the historic dioramas. From the Fort, plan a visit to Pike's Stockade, where Zebulon Pike and his men camped in the early 1800s.

Pike's Stockade will be closed for the 2019 season. Stay tuned for more information!

“More historic places like this need to exist! You’re free to walk around the beautiful and scenic grounds of the fort, and explore and imagine what life was like for the men and women who lived here over a hundred years ago. I highly recommend everyone come check out this unique, wonderfully preserved part of American history.” - reviewer on Google
