Fort Scott, Kansas

"A Premier of the Frontier"

Welcome home to Fort Scott, Kansas! Main Street, USA. Where the warmth and heartland hospitality are as vivid and memorable as the inviting storybook storefronts which rise above three-shaded brick streets. Under the scalloped canopies, search for arts, crafts, unique gifts and antique treasures to take back home.

Expect the unexpected! Fort Scott won't disappoint you! From hot air balloons to bed races, cannon firings to lighthearted melodramas and moonlit dances on Main Street for the young and young-in-heart. It's a city inhabited by mountain men, Indians, Dragoons or Civil War soldiers, depending on the time of year. Come, share it all!
