The Fort Croghan Museum and Grounds are open April through August, Thursday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Established in 1849, Fort Croghan was the third of the first four forts established by the United States government to protect settlements from hostile Indians. From 1849 until its decommission in 1853 Fort Croghan was the home to Company C, 8th Infantry, U.S.A. (mounted) and eventually became the headquarters of the Second Dragoon Regiment.
Today’s Fort Croghan is representative of those early days of what was to become Burnet, Texas. Come and visit us. See the sights and imagine the sounds of the frontier as you visit the blacksmith’s shop, the one room school house, the powder house or the stage coach stop. The museum offers over 1200 historic artifacts from in and around the Burnet County area. Come visit the Texas frontier as it once was. Come visit Fort Croghan.

Feel the anticipation of Joseph and Mary approaching the gates, urgency quickening their steps.
Pick your way through transients, peddlers, the crippled, and aged in the town’s fringe. Experience the presence of animals as they affect all aspects of life in that time . . camels, donkeys, sheep, goats, chickens, and doves.
Explore the narrow streets to faint strains of ancient music and savor the smells of fresh goat butter, campfires, and hot bread. Then immerse yourself in the din of the marketplace; the revelers in the tavern, shouted insults to and from the Roman oppressors, merchants, craftspeople, taxpayers, and beggars all seeking money, or position, or revenge.
Search for the inn, only to find it full (as others did long ago). Then follow the trail to the cave where a road-weary couple has moved in with the animals, their place in God’s plan and secular history to be made secure on this night. For the child in their arms was the incarnation of God Himself, come to the world that all who would place their faith in Him might enjoy eternal fellowship in His presence.
