Nestled along Baron’s Creek at the eastern edge of Fredericksburg next to the Texas Rangers Heritage Center, Fort Martin Scott was the first U.S. military post to be established on the western frontier of Texas. Today it is an historical treasure listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Visitors to this National Historic Site are free to wander about the grounds and reflect upon the importance that this old fort played in the development of the great State of Texas. Once teeming with the activities of soldiers, civilians and teamsters, today it is brought back to life during many of the regularly scheduled living history reenactments and events held at the fort.
