F-Troop Ft. Courage - Vague Recollections

Fort Courage was the best place in the '70s. They had all the things you'd expect: Indian head bands, tomahawks, and all the F Troup trinkets. Even had an old Buffalo that used to live right next to the 100 year old hut made of logs and mud (which is still there and is in good shape).

Things have changed so much. The back buildings have become apartments, and there were a couple of wrecked vehicles parked in front of them. Really sad to see it this way. The tower is still there and you can still go up and look around. But for those of us who remember it, it will never be as it was.

Fort Courage, Home of F Troop

Supposedly the Fort Courage Trading Post is the "Home of F Troop" from the 60's TV series. As I pulled in, I noticed the place didn't much look like Fort Courage, but still, I was looking forward to maybe getting some Hekawi tribe souvenirs or other F Troop related junk. Well, there wasn't any. Nothing. No Corporal Agarn t-shirts, no Wrangler Jane bandanas, no Sergeant O'Rourke hats, not even any Ft. Courage refrigerator magnets. Very disappointing.
