The Visitors Center is the first stopping point when arriving at the Fort Hays Historic Site. The building contains displays, bathrooms, and the Fort Hays Store.

Many of the gifts items are unique. You'll find Fort Hays coffee mugs, caps, "Highway to History" CDs, post rock bookends, kits to make bonnets, and soldier's housewives (a type of sewing kit soldiers carried), and hardtack. The store also features numerous Kansas related items such as wheat weavings, postcards, and magnets. Children will find an assortment of books and toys. #Kansas #Kansas_Historical_Society #KSHS
