Historic FT Reno
BlueSTEM AgriLearning Center is a collaborative effort between Grazinglands Research Laboratory andHistoric Fort Reno, Inc.
Historic Fort Reno, Inc. is a a nonprofit organization which is dedicated to preservation and use of the historical and cultural resources of Fort Reno. Its mission is to secure funding for restoration of historic structures, Visitor Center operations and activities, educate the public through historical interpretation, and establish those partnerships necessary for the long-term stability of the organization.
All of the proceeds from the museum admissions and events go towards restoring the historic buildings at Fort Reno. One of the buildings that was recently restored was the Commanding Officer’s Quarters which serves as the headquarters for the BlueSTEM AgriLearning Center. This building was first built in 1876 then it was remodeled in 1936 by the WPA. Most recently, the exterior of the building was refurbished in 2012 by Historic Fort Reno, Inc. and then in 2014 received a federal grant to restore the interior.
