Event Details

Join the Smith County Historical Society and the Civil War Trust as we host our 2nd annual Park Day! This event serves as a volunteer opportunity to help us service and maintain Camp Ford.

Camp Ford served as the largest prisoner of war camp west of the Mississippi and at its peak held over 5,300 men. We are asking volunteers to help us clean the site and maintain its trails and walkways for visitors. This is a normal unmanned site and we greatly appreciate the assistance we get from volunteers willing to lend a helping hand.

If you would like to volunteer, please email volunteer@smithcountyhistoricalsociety.org ! Also, please feel free to view the Civil War Trust’s website for this event: https://www.civilwar.org/events/park-day !
