Fort McKavett: Fort McKavett Archeology Day and Fall Star Party

Join us on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for Archeology Day, where we perform experimental archeology by demonstrating period trades.

In the evening, stargaze with us as we play host for the Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society's Star Party, which will commence after dark. These intrepid astronomers will bring high powered telescopes to the Parade Ground at Fort McKavett and provide the opportunity to see the fall night sky at its best, away from city lights.  

Both of these events are something to behold and we look forward to seeing you, and the stars, there!
