Bring bread for the birds and vegetables for the deer and rabbits. You cannot buy food there to feed the animals.
- Constructed in 1870, this post became a permanent home for the US Army. The Quadrangle, with its impressive clock tower, was originally built as a supply depot. In 1886, however, it served as prison grounds for Apache Chief Geronimo and his warriors. Much to the delight of children and adults alike, the facility now houses flocks of deer, rabbits, chickens, geese and ducks, which have occupied the grounds for over 100 years. The animals are tame enough to hand-feed and occasionally pet. Admission is free.
