Destination :      Fort Verde State Historic Park

Web Address :      Yes : Click Here to Visit

Category :      History / 1700 - 1900

Location :      City : Fort Verde     State : Arizona

When :      Any Time

Reason to Visit :      Fort Verde State Historic Park has several remaining buildings and parade ground of the historic Fort Verde, Arizona.

Originally called Camp Verde from 1870 it was upgraded to Fort Verde in 1879. The Post was finally abandoned in 1891.

Fort Verde Historic State Park is probably best known because after the Civil War, President Ulysses S. Grant placed General George Crook in charge of the Arizona Territory with a mission to end fighting between the Apaches and the settlers.

General Crook and his Apache Scouts used Fort Verde as an operational base in the 1870ís and 80ís during the Indian Wars. By the fall of 1872, Crook had brought peace to the Arizona Territory.

Location:
Fort Verde State Historic Park is about 50 miles south of Flagstaff, Arizona, near the city of Fort Verde, just a couple of miles east of the I-17 Interstate at exit 287.

Ray Plumlee's Comments :
Arizona State Historic Park Fort Verde is a nice park with a few of the original buildings still standing. There is the Headquarters building (doubling as the Park office and museum), the Commanding Officers Quarters (complete with the out door privy), Bachelor Officers Quarters, Surgeons Quarters and the parade field. Each of the buildings are open with authentic decorations and furniture.

There is a self guided tour that will take about one hour or less. The Fort does give you some feel for how the Buffalo Soldiers and scouts must have lived. Well worth the short stop and it is close to I-17 and easy to access.


Again my obligatory trademark picture with my truck in the foreground and U.S. Army Fort Verde in the background.

Fort Verde was where General Crook (among others) managed their Indian campaigns of the late 1860's to the early 1890's.  First the Army faught the Indians then later contained the Indians to reservations.
