Old Fort Meade Cavalry Museum

Fort Meade was established during the winter of 1878-79 by the 1st & 11th infantry as well as the reorganized 7th Cavalry.

It outlived all other frontier posts of the Upper Missouri West, surviving as a military installation until 1944 when it became a Veterans Administration Hospital as it remains today.

Journey back in military history through the many exhibits.
