1966 Excavation Fort Robinson Guard House

The foundation of the structure, constructed in 1874-75, is depicted here, looking east. The Guard House is most notable as the site where Crazy Horse was mortally wounded on September 5, 1877. Based on the findings of the archeological investigation, the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission reconstructed the building in 1967, and it remains open to visitors today.
