Fort Reno History

In 1874, historic Fort Reno, located west of El Reno, served as a military camp during the Indian Wars Era. It protected the Cheyennes and Arapahos.

By 1875, the fort was established as a permanent military post, with the addition of corrals, wells, a wagon yard and a sawmill. General Phil Sheridan named the post Fort Reno, after his friend Major General Jesse L. Reno, who died in the Civil War.

Throughout the years, Fort Reno has been the site of several significant incidences. In the 1920s, Amelia Earhart flew her autogrio at the fort's airstrip.

The ceremonial horse, Black Jack, used in President Kennedy's funeral procession, was raised and trained at the fort. Visit the Fort Reno Visitor Center to learn more about the rich history of Fort Reno.
