The Ruins Of This Decaying Military Base In Texas Will Chill You To The Bone

Here in Texas, we take honoring our military very seriously. No matter what branch, gender, age, or position served, those who fight for our country are held in the absolute highest regard. So what better way to show our support than paying a visit to one of the second World War’s most important army bases? Fort Wolters, near Mineral Wells, may be nothing more than decrepit buildings today, but its history cannot be forgotten.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
