|How to Get There:
Fort Belknap lies northwest of Graham by
Newcastle. From Graham, take US 380 west to
Newcastle, then veer south on either TX 251
or TX 61. Signs will guide you to the fort. The
Yahoo map won't show you much, but here it
is, anyway, if you want to look at it.
|In the 1930s, locals citizens restored the Fort,
adding several amenities to the grounds. This
picnic spot uses a network of grapevines for
the roof. Eating under the cool shade is a
great way to spend an afternoon!
|The museum is located inside the administration building,
and is open M-F 9-6 (closed for lunch), Sat 10-6 (closed
for lunch) and Sun 1-5p.

more accurate information. You da bomb!
