Very fun place to visit. Much history to delve into. The fort has many buildings you can visit. I loved looking at the old dresses hanging in the main building.

This fort is laid out similar to Fort Davis yet not as interesting to us, mainly because some of the buildings weren’t open and there wasn’t a narrative. The mess hall, sleeping quarters and hospital were furnished and interesting. My husband liked the historic stables.

We toured Fort Concho while on business in San Angelo. They have some nice displays of historical pieces. It is rather spread out, but it is the original buildings. We enjoyed the tour.

Sometimes a fort can just be more of the same. But the photos, the variety of buildings, the docents, make a trip to this place worthwhile.
