The Fort Clark Historic District, a sprawling 88 acre expanse, is both a U.S. Historic District and on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. It has a rich story in terms of the American frontier as well as military history. It’s also known for its architecture and the historic integrity of its site. Needless to say, it’s definitely worth a visit.

And think about it: 88 acres is a large space. Disneyland, for example, is just 85 acres.

Considering Fort Clark’s history goes back to 1852, that means lots of information and photographs. Time tends to generate that kind of stuff.

So Many Tour Stops, So Little Time

If you were taking the self-guided walking tour, it would be a bit of a time investment, and luckily, there are various maps provided on the Friends of Fort Clark Historic District web site.

And, recently the group’s leadership decided to also tackle compiling images of this historic district as a Whitepoint tour for mobile devices.

In their 25+ scene tour for mobile devices, supporters of the Fort Clark Historic District share images and information plotted across the sprawling area. Whether it’s an officer’s club, the post swimming pool, the hospital, or any of the numerous quarters, there’s a photo and certainly a story behind it.

. . . And Another Featured Whitepoint Scape
