Fort Harker, Kansas.

Fort Harker Guard House, one of only four buildings that still stand. The fort stood guard over the Smoky Hill Trail and Kansas Pacific RR as it built west across Kansas.

Alexander Gardner 1867.




This is looking east down what was the Smoky Hill Trail to Denver.

And one more Gardner photo of Fort Harker as it looked in 1867.
