Constructed in 1855 of native limestone, the Custer House is a historic house museum located on Fort Riley in Kansas, United States. It reflects Fort Riley's earliest history and authentically depicts military home life on the western frontier during the Indian Wars Period.

It is largely unchanged from its original design and furnished with period furniture from the 1880 through the 1890s.

Originally thought to have been the home of George Armstrong Custer, later research showed that General and Mrs. Custer occupied the sister-set of quarters (#21) while stationed here in 1866.

  • It is closed for renovations. Surely they could have posted this info on their website. Very disappointed that we had planned our route and times around this visit

  • We didn't know what to expect when we visited the Custer House. The furniture and fixtures are the same fixtures the house would have had in 1855. However, the museum has done a very good job...

  • This is a great piece of history Fort Riley has been able to preserve. It is one of the oldest houses on post. Although it was not the actual house of general and libbie Custer, it is just down the street from where they lived and is complete with Furnishings. This house is currently maintained by the historic and archaeological society of Fort Riley (HASFR). It hosts for and ice cream social in the fall.
  • The Custer house is kinda cool if you're already at Fort Riley I suppose but nothing to go out of your way for.
