Fort site structures include seven of the original buildings which have been restored: the post hospital; the officers' quarters (Commanding Officer); a powder magazine; a morgue; a commissary; a guardhouse; and a bakery, which baked 600 loaves per day. There are also two replicas: officers' and enlisted men's barracks. The officers' barracks houses the Interpretive Center. Activities include historical study, picnicking, camping, fishing, hiking, biking, day-use equestrian, nature study, wading in the creek (seasonal), and swimming (accessible via Lost Creek Reservoir State Trailway or by road). Tours/Events: Guided historical tours are held daily at 10 am and 2 pm; tour fees apply. Special events held throughout the year include Military Reenactments (pictured above), Bar-B-Que Cookoff, a Trout Fishing Tournament, and Living History Presentations.
Fort Richardson was the northernmost of a series of forts to protect settlers from Indian attacks. The State of Texas has restored several of the buildings and the park has a tour each day at 10AM and 2PM. The post hospital building is quite impressive. The morgue is located behind the hospital. Other buildings include the bakery, the magazine, Enlisted barracks, Officers quarters, and the ruins of the Guard House.
