Full Moon Fort Tours return to Fort Phil Kearny

Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site is announcing the return of their Full Moon Fort tours! This year, the tours will take place on the evenings of September 29 and 30, and will explore the grisly details of fort life in the 1860s. Tour guides will lead groups through the fort by lantern-light and moonlight to experience an evening of true stories that are too eerie to make up.

Tickets are on sale now, and are $10 per person, ages twelve and up. Ages eleven and under are free. Tours start at 7:00 and happen every half hour. The 7:00 tour will be child-friendly, but after that, the true stories told are a little more graphic.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.fortphilkearny.com or by calling the Fort at 307-684-7629. Tour times fill up quickly so be sure to book early, and all visitors are encouraged to dress warmly for this outdoor event.

Shari Shada, site superintendent, said that usually the event takes place around Halloween, but due to the full moon falling on Oct. 28 this year, the planners didn’t want to worry about an early snow storm or cold fall weather.

Fort Phil Kearny State Historic Site is located at 528 Wagon Box Road, in Banner, Wyoming, and is a division of Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources.
