New Fort Curtis

The original Fort Curtis was built soon after the Union army occupied Helena in 1862. New Fort Curtis allows visitors to experience an earthen fort firsthand, including the huge 24-pounder guns. Exhibits tell the story of the original fort and this unique reconstruction. This sample interpretive panel from the site discusses the use of Contraband to build the original fort (click here to view). Free admission.
