Fort Leavenworth was established in 1827, making it the third-oldest active military installation in the nation. Over 170 years of service have been contributed to the nation from the fort. Some of its sights include a national cemetery, one of the first 14 national cemeteries established by President Abraham Lincoln; the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College; Memorial Chapel, one of the oldest chapels in the Army; a swale of the Santa Fe and Oregon Trails; and many historic 19th century buildings. Among these is the Rookery, the oldest house in Kansas, built-in 1834.
Fort Leavenworth is home to the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center and the United States Disciplinary Barracks. The U.S Army Combined Arms Center provides functional training, leadership education, general training, doctrine, and training support.
