Wagon House History
Built approximately 130 years ago, the wagon shed, as it was referred to then, housed all the necessary tools and materials to build and maintain the Fort’s wagons.
Fort Klamath was a Frontier Military Post from 1863 to 1890, originally established to keep peace among the Klamath, Modoc and Yahooskin tribes. Another duty of the Fort was keeping peace between the settlers and the Indians. Winters were brutal, supplies were scarce, and day-to-day living was difficult at best.
The Local Fort Klamath museum, ably manned by First Sergeant Kevin Fields, is a great place to take it all in. Sergeant Fields is a wonderful guide for time travel and he’ll have you reliving the old west before you know it.
So if you like history, consider a stay at the Wagon House a chance of a lifetime.
