Wet/Dry Routes Markers

With their indepth research of the Santa Fe Trail, the Wet/Dry Routes Chapter felt some sites and trails needed more information. With this in mind the Chapter has placed in prominent locations along the Santa Fe Trail, "Interpretive Markers" to do just that. On these pages you will find a photo of the markers and the text placed on them.

Fort Mann Kansas Marker       Fort Mann Kansas Text


Just south of this point, Fort Mann was established as a repair depot for wagons in April, 1847 during the Mexican War by teamster Daniel Mann. Later it was occupied by U.S. Army troops from time to time. Reconstructed in 1848, the post was abandoned when nearby Fort Mackey was established in 1850.
