Fort Davis National Historic Site in west Texas offers a fascinating look inside a 19th century military outpost. The fort was founded in 1854 to protect travellers on the San Antonio to El Paso road. After being abandoned for a few years during the Civil War, it was reopened in 1867 and continued in operation until 1891.
Preservation and renovation and still underway but while many of the original buildings are still merely shells, several have been rebuilt showing how they would have looked when the fort was operational.
