About Fort Bissell Museum

Fort Bissell is a museum in Phillips County, Kansas, sponsored by the Phillips County Historical Society. The Fort was never a military fort but was built for the safety of the settlers. The families of Phillips County have donated artifacts to the museum for many years. There is a Civil War Uniform on display along with a Bible a union soldier carried through the War; a music box that came to Phillips County from West Virginia in a covered wagon; the Kingery Gun Collection which holds many unique firearms and too many other artifacts to mention. The museum is a non-profit organization and is free for anyone to come visit. We hope to see you soon at the Fort!
