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.
