DURANT — The replica of a military barracks at Fort Washita in southeastern Oklahoma has been destroyed by fire.
The site was acquired by the Oklahoma Historical Society in 1962 and the barracks were built in 1972. It was designated a National Historic Location in 1965.
Park Superintendent Larry Marcy estimates the damage at $2 million.
You have seen on this blog that I have been to this site many times.
