Join us on a haunting experience at Fort Washita in Durant, OK and enjoy a walking candelit tour of this beautiful historic site!
Fort Washita was built in 1842 as a military post of the United States up until the start of the Civil War in 1861. It was used to maintain peace for the Chickasaw and Choctaw Nations within their new lands, in accordance with treaty obligations. Fort Washita was then occupied by Confederate forces from 1861-1865. The fort was almost entirely destroyed by the Confederates at the end of the Civil War.
In 2016, the Chickasaw Nation partnered with the Oklahoma Historical Society to assume responsibility and management of Fort Washita. The site is on the National Register of Historic Places and is designed as a National Historic Landmark.
