Special to the Globe
The Fort Hays-Fort Dodge Military Road Storyboard about the Fort Hays - Fort Dodge Military Road is located by SE A Road and Highway 283 on the way to Jetmore.

For the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail, the Dodge City/Fort Dodge/Cimarron chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association is spotlighting sites along the trail in Ford and Gray Counties.

This week we are highlighting the storyboard about the Fort Hays - Fort Dodge Military Road located by S.E. A Road and US-283 highway on the way to Jetmore.

When the railroad reached Hays, the Military Road became part of the Santa Fe Trail until the Santa Fe Railroad reached Dodge City in 1872.

Visit the websites www.santafetrail.org and www.santafetrail200.org for information about the trail.

Information about the Santa Fe Trail also can be found on Facebook.
