Fort Tejon State Historic Park Announces Student Living History Program

California State Parks announces that Fort Tejon State Historic Park is offering a variety of options for student living history programs. Schools are invited to register for this unique experience, stay the night in the historic barracks and live as a soldier at Fort Tejon, an 1850’s Western Army Outpost. We offer 4 different program options, ranging from staying the night, to touring the historic grounds. The student living history program is tailored toward 4th, 5th, and 8th grade students meeting the state curriculum standards. A wide variety of activities can be organized for your group, all lead by our team of experienced staff and volunteers.

Fort Tejon was established in 1854, with the intent of peacekeeping and nation building. Fort Tejon was disbanded in 1864 as the need for men to fight the civil war became greater. It was designated a State Historic Park in 1940 in order to preserve this unique piece of California history.
