Friends of the Frontier Army Museum

Friends of the Frontier Army Museum Formerly known as the Musettes, this group of volunteers has been helping support the museum programs for over 20 years. Active in all aspects of the museum, the Friends of the Frontier Army Museum raise money for artifact purchases and new exhibits
Friends of the Frontier Army Museum, or "The Friends" as we are better known, is a social organization in the Fort Leavenworth community. We are made up of spouses, retirees, Service members, civilians, and families. Each year we plan fun events for our members and for the community to help raise money to keep the Frontier Army Museum going. Our events include the Haunted Tour of Fort Leavenworth each fall with the Tour of Historic Homes in the spring. If you are interested in joining the Friends, contact us today by sending us a message through Facebook or visiting our website. www.ffam.us Note: As we are an all volunteer organization, our phone is not manned but messages are checked regularly. Please contact us through the website if you have a time sensitive matter.

Happy 192nd Birthday Fort Leavenworth 🎉🎁

From the Vault: Drawing of U.S. 3 Cent Stamp Commemorating the 125th Anniversary of Ft. Leavenworth, 1952.

7 March 1827 the War Department directs that a military post be established on the Missouri River near the mouth of the Little Platte River. Colonel Henry Leavenworth was assigned this mission and founded a cantonment on 8 May 1827. This temporary camp would come to be known as Fort Leavenworth.

Before the Civil War the post was used as a staging point for Western explorations, including Brig. Gen. Stephen Watts Kearney's 1846 Santa Fe expedition.

Today Fort Leavenworth is known as an educational hub. On post is the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College that "educates, trains and develops leaders for Unified Land Operations in a Joint, Interagency, Intergovernmental, and Multinational operational environment."

From the Vault: Oil Painting of Fort Leavenworth, ca1960.

Built in 1872, this bridge served as a railroad and highway bridge. It was converted to a highway bridge from 1893-1909. It was a pedestrian bridge from 1909-1913. It survived two fires, one in 1904 and another in 1913. The War Department seized the bridge in 1917 and made it a vehicular bridge. The bride was in use until April 1955. The bridge was torn down in the 1960s and replaced with the Leavenworth Centennial Bridge.
