Fort Tejon Historic Park

Fort Tejon is a former United States Army outpost which was intermittently active from June 24, 1854 until September 11, 1864. The fort's mission was to suppress stock rustling and protect settlers from attacks by Native American tribes. It's located in the Grapevine Canyon along the interstate 5 highway, and comes just before you head over to the Tejon Outlet. On our visit, the park was nearly deserted and none of the buildings were open so we had to look through the windows. It really felt like we transported back in time to the mid 19th century. I would like to visit again in the future when the buildings are opened up to the general public.
