A Sunday Drive to Old Fort Gibson and the Stockade Built in 1824.

Sue and I enjoyed a beautiful Autumn Sunday afternoon by taking our granddaughters Hannah and Sarah for a drive over to the old stockade at Fort Gibson Oklahoma.

We drove from Wagoner to Hulbert then down hwy 80 through Wildwood.





The road takes us to the East side of Fort Gibson Dam, then South to the town of Fort Gibson.



Some of the old cabins have been restored.





Volkswagen not authentic as to period.





The stockade itself was nicely restored back in the 1930s.




We peek in at some of the quarters set up to approximate the style of the early days.












Not enough time to see it all as the girls had to get beck for church youth group. A very nice day.

Very nice pics, Uncle Bill! Great success!

Out of curiosity, was it getting cold out there? I saw the pic with the kids in their short sleeves... was wondering about it since it was approaching the winter period.

I remember going there with you and Luke a long time ago. I will have to take my kids there someday.

I have enjoyed many a trip along that very same road. My family used to have a lot on Grand Lake. Ah, memories! Thanks for the pictures!
