The First Fort Dodge Hospital

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail, the Dodge City / Fort Dodge / Cimarron Chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association is illuminating the locations along the trail in Ford and Gray Counties.

This week we’re highlighting the storyboard about the first Fort Dodge Hospital on the northwestern edge of the fort. It was the first post hospital. Visit www.santafetrail.org and www.santafetrail200.org for information on the trail. You can also find information about the Santa Fe Trail on Facebook.
