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.

I was surprised how quiet it was having just come from Montezuma Castle. I guess the fact that it`s an State attraction it does not get much publicity. It was very enjoyable and an eye opener. The entrance just $ 7 per person, it has...More

Fort Verde will be very interesting and enjoyable for those interested in history. The fort is an example of a typical western fort, consisting of a series of low-rise buildings without a fenced perimeter. This contrast markedly from the typical stockaded, multi-story structures found in...More

We tend to stop at these types of historical site when traveling. My husband found the information very interesting and Sheila the ranger was a great wealth of local information. Well laid out and great signs, plenty of things to keep kids involved.

Take time to see how life in this part of our country began. Great history of soldiers and Native Americans. Stroll through the quarters and look at the magnificent scenery off in the distance.
