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 limestone marker and plaque where the Fort Hays-Fort Dodge Military Road came into the fort. The marker is just east of the old fort hospital on the road heading north.

A Santa Fe Trail Geo Cache is located here.

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

Also information about the Santa Fe Trail can be found on Facebook.
