After inventing geometry and physics, Greeks invented history—primarily as a way to document their many inventions. Take a stroll through history with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get a self-guided tour for up to two adults and four children at Fort Concho Museum, located in San Angelo (up to a $12 value). This deal also includes a choice of postcard or poster from the gift shop.
The Fort Concho Museum comprises about 40 acres of the area formerly covered by the historic Fort Concho, built in 1867 to protect frontier settlements and host the patrols of the West Texas region. With this deal, fort fans will be able to peruse the line of barracks and its reproduction of an artillery piece, then venture into the post headquarters which concurrently served as the headquarters for the District of Pecos. Rebuilt in 1986, the fort's hospital depicts its original appearance before it was struck by lightning and burned down in 1911, while the multipurpose schoolhouse and chapel building illustrates how 19th-century soldiers and their families made use of space for religion, schooling, and all-night video-game tournaments.
