Fort Winfield Scott’s future

In January, 2018, the Presidio Trust issued a Request for Concept Proposals (RFCP) with the goal of turning the Fort Scott buildings into a “Campus for Change”

Several proposals were submitted early in the summer of 2018 – these are on the Presidio website at, as are the Trust staff’s preliminary recommendations.  Public comment was also invited.

The Presidio Historical Association’s letter PHA Fort Scott Concepts Comments   focused on the importance of providing for historic interpretation in the planing for the reuse of the Ft Scott site.
