There are so many things to do in Oklahoma. Recently, we decided to take a trip to Fort Reno, which is just outside of El Reno, Oklahoma. I loaded the car up full of teenage girls and headed that way. My oldest daughter is 15-years-old and the idea of places being haunted fascinates her. This place also has a lot of history so they could learn along the way.
What is Fort Reno?
Fort Reno is not hard to find if you follow the signs. It is located at 7107 W. Cheyenne St. in El Reno, Oklahoma. There is a very small fee to enter, but it is worth it. You can spend hours here if you look around at everything.
Fort Reno was actually a military post clear back in 1876. There is a lot of history here, but along with it comes a lot of death. During World War II, it served as a camp for German POWs. Over 1,300 soldiers were sent there during this time.
There is a lot of history at Fort Reno and several buildings to see. The people who work here obviously love their job and know the history. You do not want to miss hearing their stories about Fort Reno.
Ghost stories everywhere
There are all kinds of ghost stories that go along with Fort Reno. They even do a special tour based on it. When we got there, the woman working at the visitor’s center told us about Fort Reno.
When she realized that we were interested in possibly supernatural activity there she went on to tell us several stories. One big thing that seems to go on there is the sound of men’s boots in a hallway when nobody is there. She also mentioned seeing orbs on the security camera monitors all the time.
During our visit to Fort Reno, we took several pictures and enjoyed looking around. We never saw anything that appeared to be supernatural. The only odd thing that happened to us was at the cemetery. It was a cool day and had been raining off and on. We got out of the car and walked into the cemetery. Once inside, it started to get really cold and even began to rain. It stayed that way while we looked around, but as soon as we left things went back to normal.
