Advance Bourbon County is proud to support local projects through fundraising efforts.

Our primary way of doing this is to bring entertainment events to Fort Scott.

Memorial Hall

We are currently raising funds to help make improvements to Memorial Hall. In 1925 this neoclassical building was constructed and dedicated to the men and women who gave their lives serving our country in World War I. It is a contributing property to Fort Scott’s Downtown Historic District and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009. The building will celebrate its 100th birthday in just two short years.

Splashpad and Sensory Park

We were proud to have played such a large part in raising funds for the All Inclusive Splashpad and Sensory Park that will be coming to Fort Scott in the summer of 2023. This park will improve quality of life and community engagement by providing an outdoor recreational amenity that encourages and fosters socialization and inclusion for all demographics. This will be Fort Scott’s first and only fully accessible park.
