Located in Durant, Oklahoma, Fort Washita was built in 1842 and served as a former United States military post in northern Bryan County. The mission of Fort Washita was to protect the Chickasaw and Choctaw tribes from the Plains Indians and was abandoned after the Civil War in 1865. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Fort Washita has become a popular point of interest for visitors and tour groups of all sizes to journey into the past through informational exhibits, Civil War reenactments, storytelling and more.

After being abandoned in 1862 by Federal forces and then being occupied by Confederate troops during the Civil War, the Oklahoma Historical Society acquired Fort Washita in 1962 and restored it to the historic site and museum that stands today.

Fort Washita gives visitors the opportunity to explore the restored structures, see Civil War reenactments and a yearly Fur Trade Era rendezvous, which takes visitors on a journey of the past through educational stations, storytellers and more.
