Historic Sites, Fort Apache, Arizona

Fort Apache Historic Park
Fort Apache Historic District is four miles south of Whiteriver, Arizona, off Arizona 73 on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. It’s pretty remote much like most of the Indian Reservations in Arizona, but the site is worth the drive and can take hours to see it all. Plus the Kinishba Ruins are a few miles to the west of the fort and will take another hour or two to explore.

History:
Constructed between 1874 and 1932, the Fort Apache Historic District encompasses the original site of the Fort Apache military post. Fort Apache was a major outpost during the Apache wars (1861-1886) and remained a military post until 1922. In 1923 the fort became the site of the Theodore Roosevelt Indian School. The district contains over 30 structures, ranging from a reconstruction of an early log building to original two-story dormitories. Also included are a headquarters building, sleeping quarters, corrals, storehouses, a guardhouse, a magazine, stables, an old military cemetery and prehistoric ruins.
