A number of historic preservation investigations were conducted at Fort Leavenworth.

In 1970, two historic sites were listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP): the Main Parade Ground and the Santa Fe Trail Ruts.



  • Fort Leavenworth is located on the Frontier Military Scenic Byway (US Hwy 69 & K-7 corridor), 

    which was originally a military supplies road connecting to Fort Scott and Fort Gibson, Oklahoma.


    Brief History of Fort Leavenworth

    For a short time, the territory reverted to France,

    but in 1803 it became a part of the United States as part of the Louisiana Purchase.


    Beginning with Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, the Frontier Army took part in exploring,

    charting, and describing the vast new reaches of the country.


  • In 1870, the Army's Signal Corps developed a national weather service.

          The Frontier Army patrolled Yellowstone National Park, to protect it from vandalism and poaching.


  • By 1886, Army engineer officers had become the superintendents of all national parks.

          They continued in this role until 1916 when the National Park Service took over.
