Fort Concho, San Angelo

(4.5/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Fort Concho is a National Historic Landmark owned and operated since 1935 by the city of San Angelo, the seat of Tom Green County in West Texas. Situated on the North Concho River, near its confluence with the South and Middle Concho Rivers, the site selected for Fort Concho was strategic to the stabilization of the region, because of the location of no fewer than five major trails in the vicinity. Though the fort was surrounded by miles of flat, treeless prairie, it was considered to be “one of the most beautiful and best ordered posts in Texas."Other forts in the frontier fort system were Forts Griffin, Richardson, Belknap, Chadbourne, Stockton, Davis, Bliss, McKavett, Clark, McIntosh, Inge, and Phantom Hill in Texas, and Fort Sill in Oklahoma. "Sub posts or intermediate stations" were also used, including Bothwick's Station on Salt Creek between Fort Richardson and Fort Belknap, Camp Wichita near Buffalo Springs between Fort Richardson and Red River Station, and Mountain Pass between Fort Concho and Fort Griffin.

  • My son attended this school through the GT program from 2011-2013. The teachers are professional and work well with the students. I felt welcomed as a parent and enjoyed the opportunities to attend field trips and school functions. Ms. Lopez and Ms. Stevens were excellent teachers. Ms. Barton is an approachable and friendly principal. I only wish we could have stayed longer. Sadly, we had to move.
