Great Customer Service
Sorry about delayed response. We had a wonderful visit to the Fort in September. My husband enjoys visiting battle field sites and Forts, because he loves history and I am a photographer so the Fort Phil Kearny State Historic site was a wonderful find for us both. Starr was an amazing docent her knowledge and enthusiasm were amazing. We will visit the Fort again when traveling through the area.
Great Customer Service
Well, Starr has done it again! We visited Ft. Phil Kearny a short time ago and while there I asked Starr what was the one book I should read. She told me and wondering how I would get so many books back home (I had already bought quite a few) I decided I would order it when I got home. Of course I did not remember the title of the book she had recommended by the time I got home I called her. She told me the title off the top of her head and wanting to support the Ft.Kearny I asked if I could purchase it from her. Two days later I was reading my book and was so thankful Starr was there to remind me of the title and to mail it to my home so quickly. Thank you Starr, you are wonderful!

Great full moon tour!
Just got back from the full moon tour- WOW! Great job by everyone involved! We went with Private Murphy and learned all about the typical frontier soldier and hardships they faced; wish we'd have had time to go with Col. Carrington and get his perspective as well. It was above and beyond what I had been expecting. Especially liked the "wolves" and ghost soldiers.
My only suggestions would be to maybe somehow do a pre-registration to avoid start time confusion and to keep the groups smaller so that everyone could hear.
We enjoyed our second visit to Fort Phil Kearny very much and there have been many improvements made since our last visit. Starr was especially helpful with her interpretation and recommendation on books to read. She greeted us with a smile and was helpful throughout our whole visit.
Thank you for making our trip so enjoyable.
Three sisters history vacation
My sisters and I were surprised to see how big Fort Phil Kearny was and to find out how close the Fetterman massacre was to the Fort. A lady named Starr went out of her way to answer all our questions and made the whole history of the area come alive. Please tell her how much we appreciated all the information she gave us. It was a very special day for us on a 2 week vacation. Everything was so neat and tidy, too. Judy Aster
Vey Excellent Presentation
Misty made a wonderful presentation today to myself and nine other volunteers and staff of NHTIC in Casper. We came away with a tremendous amount of new knowledge that will probably impact the Native American portion of our presentations at NHTIC. Misty also continued to address questions afterward. Her knowledge and her ability to present it were wonderful.
Return to Fort Phil Kearny
I was first here in Sept. of 1973 when there was just a cabin and a flag pole. I noticed the sign saying there was a visitor center and decided to stop. Congratulations on this expanding site. I'm quite impressed by what has been accomplished and it caused me to read once again the book on "Fort Phil Kearny" that I purchased in in 1973. They were in almost constant conflict and the story should be better known. Praise to Starr for being a great host and making the visit more enjoyable.
AN UNEXPECTED TREAT
The visitor center guide STARR was helpful and bouncy and full of good information about the fort. She had plenty of trivial details and bits about the fort that the general public don't know. She was very enthusiastic.
Wow! Great people who are very enthusiastic about this facility really made our day. Starr & Kevin were remarkable! We've already passed the word along and are working on recommending this site/story as a wonderful screenplay. Let's cross our fingers.
Very worthwhile, amazing place!
Very passionate staff! Friendly and very interesting. Loved this place!
