Overview

Winner of the 2015 Arizona Governor's Heritage Preservation Honor Award. Fort Verde is one of the best preserved examples of an Indian Wars period fort in Arizona. This original Military Headquarters is now a museum which contains artifacts, photos, videos, and interpretive exhibits focused on the history and lives of those who lived and served at Fort Verde: soldiers, Indian Scouts, settlers, doctors, and Native Americans. Three of the original homes along Officer's Row are still remaining and furnished with period artifacts.

Although there are only 4 buildings left, they are wonderfully preserved. The museum was excellent; we got a lot of information about the Apache wars and the workings of the Army during that time. Access to the buildings gives one insite into the every daylife...More

The Parks' people are great - very informative. The museum is very informative - one would not realize necessarily all that went on in this place and during what time frame in our nation's history. Well maintained.
