“Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site includes a visitor’s center with exhibits, videos, a bookstore, and self-guided tours of the fort grounds and outlying sites. The tour marks the archaeological remains of the fort’s buildings. A cabin built by the Civilian Conservation Corps has been furnished to depict the period quarters of an officer’s wife and a non-commissioned officer’s quarters. Visitors can also tour the nearby battlefields which are located within a five mile radius of the visitor center and include interpretive trails.”
A headline in Montana’s Big Timber Pioneer newspaper suggests that the project was completed in 1938.
