The limestone marker, plaque and storyboard about Fort Mann is located on the west edge of Dodge City on the south side of Kettle Way about three-quarters of a mile from the end of the street.

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, plaque and storyboard about Fort Mann which is located on the west edge of Dodge on the south side of Kettle Way about three-quarters of a mile from the end of the street. A wrought iron fence is directly in front of it.
