SAN ANGELO - The Texas Forts Trail and Fort Concho have made a new addition to their programs to increase tourism in the West Texas area.

Tourism is also an industry that is good for the region. “The longer you can keep a visitor in a region, the more the economic benefit,” said Bob Bluthardt of Fort Concho National Historic Landmark.

They are now offering a “passport,” which is a booklet of information on the various forts along the trail with a place to get a stamp. Those who get at least 12 of the 16 possible stamps will be eligible to win a grand prize.

The implementation of the passports is barely a week old, but according to Bluthardt, it’s already working.

Passports are available at multiple sites including Fort Concho in San Angelo and Brown County Museum of History in Brownwood.
