The public is invited to an open house for "The Evolution of Hunting: From Survival to Marketing to Sport at Fort Larned," a special exhibition that examines how hunting transitioned from a survival necessity to a leisure sport enjoyed by cavalry officers and their wives at Fort Larned.

The open house is held in conjunction with the Fort Larned Old Guard's "Mess & Muster" day of events. All events are free and open to the public.

At 1:30 PM, Fort Hays State University History Professor Juti Winchester will discuss the topic, "New Yorkers on the Warpath: Easterners Go West to Hunt"

The project is part of "Hometown Teams," a statewide initiative exploring the way sports build and unite communities.
