Fort Douglas Military Museum and its collection

Fort Douglas Military Museum

Camp Douglas was established in October 1862, during the American Civil War , as a small military garrison about three miles east of Salt Lake City , Utah , to protect the overland mail route and telegraph lines along the Central Overland Route . In 1878, the post was renamed Fort Douglas . It was officially closed in 1991 pursuant to BRAC action and most of the buildings were turned over to the University of Utah . A small section of the original fort is still used by the U.S. Army Reserve and includes the Fort Douglas Military Museum . The fort was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1975, for its role in the Civil War and in furthering the settlement of Utah.
