Old Fort?

Stone Mystery Needs Answers

By Tom Parish

This Old Fort/Home/Barn is located on the intersection of Tri-Country Rd and Boulder Road about 10 miles north of Alta Vista and 5 miles west of Alma. While the identity of this is a mystery, it clearly pre-dates Fort Riley, and was probably one of the initial constructions on the frontier before Kansas became a territory. Clearly abandoned for a very long time, it offers only a vague reminder of years past and battles (maybe?) won and lost.

If anyone does have any information regarding the identity of this structure, we would happily add it to this post.
