Everyone In Iowa Should See What’s Inside The Walls Of This Abandoned Fort
Iowa’s plains are littered with historic sites like forts, trails and burial mounds. One of the most often overlooked is in Winnesheik County in the small town of Fort Atkinson. The town was named after a Fort that managed Iowan efforts to resettle Winnebago Native Americans that were removed from Wisconsin. Eventually, it was closed up, and today you can visit this abandoned Fort in Iowa to learn about our state’s shameful treatment of the natives that once called this land their home.
