Description:

Visitors to Northern Arizona's Fort Verde State Historic Park are treated to a first-hand glimpse into life as a frontier soldier. This park is the former base for General Crook's U.S. Army scouts and soldiers, dating back to the 1870s and 1880s. For a fascinating look of a working fort during the tumultuous period of the Indian Wars, Fort Verde State Historic Park offers a strong visual glimpse into the past. Today, the former administration building is the Visitor Center, featuring period artifacts, interpretive displays, and rare insight into the history of the Indian Scouts. Picnic tables, restrooms, and RV parking make this a good stopping point for families and history buffs alike.
