Fort Lancaster Featured in Heritage Tourism Travel Guide

Last week, the Texas Historical Commission (THC) launched its newest travel guide, the Texas Pecos Trail Region. Highlighting heritage tourism attractions in West Texas, the guide explores the region's frontier spirit and Texas mystique. One of the sites featured is the THC's own Fort Lancaster State Historic Site, an 1855 fort that was established to protect the military route between San Antonio and El Paso. The guide features a wide spectrum of heritage tourism attractions from unique state parks to Native American rock art to oil and petroleum museums. Download the travel guide or request a free copy on the THC web site.

Fort Lancaster is located off I-10, 120 miles south of Midland-Odessa in the Texas Pecos Trail Region.
