Historic Fort Reno, Inc., is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and use of the historical and cultural resources of Fort Reno. Its mission is to secure funding for the restoration of historic structures, Visitor Center and Museum operations and activities, educate the public through historical interpretation, and establish those partnerships necessary for the long-term stability of the organization.  Although we operate within a federal installation, all funding is raised by fundraising efforts, grants, and donations. No state or federal funding is currently available to support our efforts.
