  • Very enjoyable visit. Nice visitor center and nice grounds. There are many historic buildings to visit. The buildings all have very good signage and are very informative. The drive from Ruidoso to the fort is also very scenic and not very long. A good place to spend a few hours and learn about the local military history.
  • The place is very well kept and has so much to see that it is worth the time. My husband and I enjoyed it a lot.
  • A very well kept relic of military life on the frontier. Lots of things to take pictures of. The museum also has interesting pictures not too often found else where. And they roads in the area are stunning.
  • Great variety of buildings from the various eras of this fort. Interesting history. Free self-guided walking tour.
  • 1855 era civil war fort. Well preserved, and has reenactment at various times. Call for schedule.
