Three campaigns started to raise $71,000 for restoration

Fort Reno mule barn. Ft. Reno, OK

The US Cavalry Association launched a major fund-raising campaign to restore one of three original mule barns built on Fort Reno in 1876. The building was badly damaged during a tornado that hit El Reno in 2013.

The building needs extensive restoration, which will take months to complete. The campaign funds will be used exclusively for building repairs.
