  • My wife and I were here in 1970 when I was in the Army, stationed at White Sands Missile Range and living in Las Cruces. Even though my wife Sharon was pregnant at the time we were explorers and Fort Selden was one of the first places we visited. Loved the fort and loved the desert.
  • A 'Hidden Gem', with an interesting history. Very knowledgeable staff as well! Be sure to visit the Fort Selden Winery across the road after your tour of the fort.
  • Great little Monument. Could use more, though. Nothing about Buffalo Soldiers, and hardly anything about McArthur.
  • The interpretive center is really informative, and you really get a good feel for what life was like in this part of the New Mexico Territory in its earlier days. The Buffalo Soldier exhibit was particularly enlightening. While there are no tour guides to show you the ruins, the self-guided tour is fascinating nonetheless. The only negative is that what remains of the ruins isn't really stabilized, meaning that what's left of the adobe walls will eventually melt into the earth.
  • Interesting old ruins. The visitor center is very nice and the people are helpful.
