Where I stayed
Osage Prairie RV Park
Just as we did yesterday for Tallgrass Prairie, we got up this morning and drove back west to Fort Scott, leaving the coach in the RV park in Nevada, Missouri. This fort is in the middle of the town. It had an interesting history guarding the Indian Frontier in the 1840s, escorting settlers along the Santa Fe Trail, sending units to fight in the Mexican War, and training soldiers for the Civil War. Most of the buildings have been restored or rebuilt.
