HASFR Footprint Projects
The HASFR footprint projects are our "footprint" being left behind long after we have moved on. These projects are helping ensure that our Fort Riley historical significance stays here and is present daily. Ft. Riley has so much history; let's help preserve it together.
Footprint projects show many ways in which we have tried to help better not only Ft. Riley's historical and architectural sites but also the lives of those who live in this great place and are touched by it. Different Footprint projects include having helped to raise over $20,000 towards our scholarship program, fixing and redoing displays in our museums, and helping to restore the installation plaques that tell us so much about our unique history.
Footprint projects give back to our community by preserving our history and helping ensure that the history that so many love is maintained for everyone who lives and visits here.

April 2019 Plaque Dedication
In 2016, HASFR began a project to install historical marker plaques at the various points of interest on the Ft Riley walking tour of Historic Main Post. In the spring of 2017, we dedicated three plaques describing 5 locations: the US Cavalry Museum, the Custer House, and St Mary's and Main Post Chapels. This year, we decided to pick this project back up, and our primary focus became installing as many plaques as we could get completed. Involving one year of work since its conception, hundreds of volunteer hours, and over $13,000 in costs, on April 17, 2019, we proudly dedicated seven plaques, describing 9 locations, which include, Cavalry Parade Field, Old Trooper Monument, Forsyth Avenue, Quarters 1, Ogden Monument, the Trolley Station, the former Hay Storage area and buffalo corral, Building 500, and Artillery Parade Field.
