There was so much information in this tiny original cabin-- officer quarters. Be sure to take self tour of fort and visit the museum.

We did the complete tour and we loved it. We even watched the videos inside the museum. The old fort, dormitories for the "Indian" girls and school were breath taking to view. We were disappointed that we couldn't tour all the historical homes.

So much culture, history, and natural beauty in one stop. I loved looking at the Apache artifacts and reading about their culture. This is such a unique place and it is well preserved. Make sure you stop in at the resteraunt. It's worth it!

All beautiful places although Show Low is highly urbanized. Fort Apache Cultural Center is nicely done, and the Fort buildings area is a nice walking area (although easily accessed via auto).

Fort Apache Historic Park is the place to experience Apache history and culture. Its worth the visit to help understand the Apache heritage and traditions.
