The original Fort Curtis was built soon after the Union army occupied Helena in 1862. This reconstructed Fort Curtis, a 3/4 scale replica of the original fort, 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. Fort Curtis is a self-guided site, but guided tours may be requested based on staff availability.
