This looks like a work in progress. There are a few buildings remaining from the original fort, and a few identified by rocks where the foundations used to be. It has reader boards with some interesting information. Expect to walk, the buildings are well-spaced.

At first you think the venue is all about the Texas Rangers. The Rangers are very very awesome. The sites are interlinked and worth a visit.

There is no charge to visit Fort Martin Scott. However, if you would like to leave a donation, they would be very happy to accept. All donations benefit the fort only. I don't know when you are planning to visit, but they... More
