Hidden deep in the native limestone buildings of Fort Riley, lies quarter #24A, the Custer House of Fort Riley. The beautiful stone building doesn't stand out against the others that look almost identical, but it is a frequent stopping point for travelers among I-70.
Built in the 1800's, the house stands near the location of General Custer's home prior to it's unfortunate demise following a kitchen fire several years ago. 24A has an uncanny resemblance to Custer's home, and onlookers who take a walk through the quarters can find numerous historic artifacts, unique architecture and antique furnishings similar to that found in General Custer's home.
Several visitors visited the Custer House last weekend in honor of hearing the numerous ghost stories inhabitants of the base have experienced whilst touring historic sites on Fort Riley.
Those who wish to visit the historic sites at Fort Riley can call Fort Riley's Visitors Center at 785-239-2982 for more information on obtaining temporary access to the installation, in addition to hours of operation for historical sites located on the post.
