RIO GRANDE STATION

RIO GRANDE STATION. Rio Grande Station was the name given by James M. Norris to old Fort Duncan, when on April 7, 1862, he selected the site as a station for the Frontier Regiment. The station was manned by members of Capt. Thomas Rabb's company as a ranger post until March 1864. After the Civil War the post was reoccupied by federal troops as Fort Duncan.
