Significance: The two officers quarters built in 1877 and 1879, the parade grounds, a wagon shed built in 1883, the flag pole erected in 1887 and seven other facilities erected later are the remaining on site vintage structures of the original Fort Keogh Military Reservation. This historic site is under jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service. The original fort was militarily significant in suppression of the Indians following the Battle of the Little Bighorn. It evolved from that period to an important Remount Station prior to, during and following World War I. From there it evolved into a significant Agriculture Research Station. Ft. Keogh contributed to the early settlement of the west and stability of Southeastern Montana and the Northern Great Plains.
