The complex consists of the powder house; the married officer's quarters which houses the Cheyenne County Museum; and the Post Commander's Home, restored and refurbished with authentic articles of the late 1800's. The Museum and the Post Commander's home are a major attraction for the county. A special event held at the complex during the holidays is the  "Old Fashioned" Christmas Celebration.  

Community organizations adopt rooms in the Post Commander's Home and the Bachelor Officers' Quarters and decorate with all the holiday trimmings. During the Thanksgiving weekend you can enjoy Lamplight Tours with reenactments of a family home setting for the era. Museum at 6th & Jackson Sts; Post Commander's Home at 1153 6th Ave - Garrison was built to protect railroad workers in the late 1800s. Historical markers give the history of the old railroad town and the north-south trails to the gold fields in the Black Hills.
